How much writing do you get done in a sitting? The answer feeds a lot more than your progress toward a deadline-it can tell you a lot about your writing life and writing needs.
What do I mean by “big” or “small”? While my book goes into much greater detail, the basic concept is this: If you have a day job or something else that keeps you from writing full time, I place the dividing line between big and small chunk writers at 1,000 words. That means that if your average writing session produces less than 1,000 words (where I started way back when), chances are you’re a small chunk writer. Conversely, if your sessions net you more than 1,000 words, you’re likely a big chunk writer. Learn more.
