It’s ten minutes before five and I wanted to add in the link that I promised in last podcast.  As I said, my social media bud, Jennifer Navarrete, ran the San Antonio Rock And Roll Half Marathon today and actually used Utterli to talk about the run as she was doing it.  Definitely check it out.

I am officially caught up.  Based on the rate I should be writing at, I should end the day at 26,672 words.  My current word count is 26,72 so I’m back where I need to be.  Now I just need to get far enough ahead that I can stay caught up.

Wish me luck!

I’d just like to announce that I have finally passed into the realm of a 5 digit word count.  As of the time of this post, my word count is 10,333!  Woohoo!

If anyone out there knows how word processors count words, I would love to understand it a little better.  I have been writing the novel in MS Word 2007.  Tonight I thought I could hit 7,000 words and, according to the word count in MS Word, I did.  7019, to be exact…or as exact as the word count is.

Each day I copy the whole document into Google Docs basically as a backup, but also if I happen to be somewhere with an internet connection and I have a chance to bang a few paragraphs out, it’s right there for me.  At any rate, I looked at the word count in the Google Doc version, which I remind you I JUST copied and pasted from MS Word and it says there are 7115 words.

Now I understand where there could probably be slight differences in word count depending on exactly how it calculates, but 96 words?  That just seems kinda high. I can’t imagine what the difference in calculation is that would cause this.

Any insight, folks?
