Advice: Don’t ditch quality so you can hit 50,000 words. While this may seem to contradict the ‘turn off your inner editor rule’, there is logic to it. The ultimate goal is quantity but you shouldn’t be careless with your writing. You can’t say your manuscript is a story when it is actually a disjointed stream-of consciousness mental regurgitation. The process, the discipline, and connecting with your ability to converse in prose is just as important as the number.

Prompt: Suddenly an important newsflash came on the television screen
