I've set a preliminary goal of 30,000 words. Based on my recent numbers that feels very, very doable.
Since I spent some time doing an outline, character work, and beats, as well as looking at novel pacing with Libbie Hawker's Take Off Your Pants! the work of writing has come down to simply getting the words on the page. I've pretty well quit meandering and just drive. I did have one hard left turn out of nowhere, but when I pulled over to examine the map, found that it actually fit right in. So, we're good!
In addition, I read through Rachel Aaron's 2k to 10k and also can't recommend that enough. Seriously. I've implemented her ideas and managed 18,000 words in four days, which is huge. I average over 1,000 words an hour, and I think that is about as fast as I can type at the moment.
The point is, since following the advice in these two books I haven't yet had a 20 word day. Because I used to have a lot of those. I'm excited about my book, which wasn't always the case - especially when I didn't know where I was going and the writing was mentally exhausting. Now, I am itching to log time and I can't get the words out fast enough. Writing is FUN again.
Hopefully at the end of April I will be able to check in with a novel that's closer to 50,000 words. I'd love to have it done by the end of April, but we'll see how the month plays out. I am truly excited and really can NOT wait to get this book into the hands of some readers.
