    Yes - I am one of those who re-writes and re-writes, and I may have written 10,000 pages, but I may not use it all. It can be frustrating. But if done correctly, I agree with the above that it is a nice feeling to see your progress, if it is progress, at the end of the day.

    I totally agree with the "building a habit" idea and the idea of "the more you write, the stronger you get."

    Personally I fall into the camp of those who like to get things right the first time around... simply because I may not ever return to something "finished" to clean it up or even re write.

    What I've done to great success though, was to write 750 words a day, and be prepared to simply discard the result. Many days I would just trash it, but I've had full first drafts come out of this too.

    I'm too prepared to discard the result. ;) But yes I see your point.
