Thanks to web-savvy, Jenna, I installed a counter. Hey, you learn a bit of HTML with this blog don’t you? Anyway, here I am with two chapters to go in my head and the counter is telling me 75%. Hmm, it might not last!
Mind you, on word count I always run at about 49,000. On the old 250 words for page I was always around 53,000. Go figure.
When I asked my editor about word count she just said, ‘the three books we’ve bought have been a fine length so just keep doing that.’
O….K. So for all you people stressing about it, wordcount it is an inexact science so STOP STRESSING NOW! 🙂
And I think the counter might be short lived..I mean, if I have to tinker with it to say 100% to get the buzz of a finished book then it’s not going to do it for me. But a May 1st deadline, now THAT will do it for me.
