Word Metrics

For Saturday Aug 13, 2011:

Project: Saturday (sequel to Enchanted)
Deadline: Dec 31, 2011
New words written: 1544
Present total word count: 12,844 words

I’ve decided, for my own personal writing well-being, to take a page from Cherie Priest’s book and start posting my writing metrics. This will not only keep me accountable for my writing, but it will also pave the way for YOU GUYS to kick me in the butt when I seriously need it.

I also posted about this on the Waterworld Mermaids site today, and challenged the other Mermaids to do the same for the rest of the month, at least.

So what do you say, is it a deal?

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get to work…

    I’ve found it a useful tool, yes – and if nothing else, it will make you feel like you’ve accomplished something 🙂

    If you’re keen on such things, allow me to recommend the word meter in this-here toolbox online:

    (It’s the one I use, and people always ask about it.)
