Words per Day

I was curious, so I looked around online to see what other writers get for words per day.  It’s never going to be an exact formula, and will vary from writer to writer, but I was looking for a ballpark figure.  Most said 500-1000.  Stephen King said about 2000.

I get around 3000 on a full day of writing.  They aren’t always of the highest quality, but that is what editing is for.  I recently had a great day of what I think was quality writing that was at around 5000 words.  I wish I could say that made me a stellar writer, but I do not subscribe to the theory that quantity has a quality all its own.  Still, I do like the flow!
