pondering–which words count?

Posted by Dindrane on November 15, 2007 in writing |

If my goal is to write at least 1000 words a day, and today I wrote over that, but then deleted it all because I wanted to take the scene a completely different direction, does that earlier 1000 words still count towards today’s total? Or does only physical growth of the manuscript count, even if in the process I learned something about the craft of writing and about my particular book?

Or am I quibbling about a faux goal and not keeping the book itself in focus?
