Doing the Happy Dance


I just wrote "The End" a little while ago and I've started typing the story into the computer. Based on a couple sample pages, I see I've grossly miscalculated my word count. I've under-estimated it so I have a revised word meter to post.


EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
5,800 / 6,000
(96.7%)


Yay! I'm in better shape than I thought. After I get this typed then I'll print it and edit off the hard copy. I know I need to add descriptions and smooth out some rough places. I should hit my 6000 word goal with no problem and get this baby mailed to NYC next week right on schedule.

P.S. Remember that the Sugar and Spice contest on our website will end at noon CST on June 30. If you haven't entered, rush right over and get your name in the hat. The link for the contest is to the right in the sidebar of the blog.

Are you allowed to reuse titles? I wasn't sure...
