flash read/write cycles

I am currently working with a HC08JK3, for a small project that needs to use some of the Flash memory for data variables. I read in the manual that the Flash has 10k erase/program cycles. I question is, every time I write the Flash, even if I write only one byte, it counts as a program cycle.
As far as I knew, the only important thing to consider about the Flash memory were the erase cycles, because the critical operation was to "raise" the bits from 0 to 1. Can someone help me ?
