This week, inspired by the Shuffle plugin for Obsidian, I made a goal to write 500 words every day. Since making this goal, I have written every day but have hit 500 words only once–my first day, when I wrote two prompts.

The problem is that if I have specific goals (such as including three certain words in a story), I focus only on those requirements and try to squeeze them in as quickly as possible, neglecting to write an actual story.
