As soon as I catch up, I’ll put a word-count widget here on the blog somewhere, probably in the sidebar. 50,000 words in 30 days, no editing, no re-writing, no listening to one’s inner editor, just going for it and throwing caution to the wind, just write and don’t let anyone read it (a key way to keep the inner—and outer—editor quiet). Then save it as a text file and upload it to the Word Count thingy, it won’t be read or saved and your new word count will show on your Author Profile Page.
Now I’m going to write and get caught up. My word count widget should be up (and up-to-date) by tomorrow. Peace be with you. Now go write your novel! :)
