The 100K Year

This goal has the following fine print specified by florismk:

The goal is to write at least 100,000 words in the 366 days of calendar year 2016. Rounding the daily amount up to 274, the actual total will come to 100,558 or more. The secondary goal is to write at least 274 words every single day, but occasional lapses are acceptable against a safety buffer.

Every day is defined as every day I am physically capable of writing. Specifically: conscious, able to move enough of my body, able to see, and in possession of a writing implement (preferably laptop or tablet, but pen and paper count as well).

Words count only if they're written as new prose, either in a new first draft, or in a new section of an existing draft, or in a subsequent draft written from scratch. Outlining counts as well, as does synopsis writing.

Given my light touch in editing, editing my own work counts at a rate of 5:1 or less, so 5000 words edited equals 1000 words towards my goal. Combination writing/editing counts at a rate determined by my own estimate of the proportions of writing and editing. I will always report the total number of words wredited in the comment.

Blogging on my own site does not count, but blog posts and columns written at request or to order do.

Critiquing other writers' stories counts at a rate of 2:1, so for writing 250 words of critique, I log 125 words. In this case, too, I will always report the total number of words of critique written.
