Does it help to have a running word count? Is this to keep you writing, or is it something else, like feeling success as you strive toward your goal? Wanna understand it before I decide whether or not to try it.

It always helps me because then I can see my progress.

Keeping track of progress... Okay, I see value. I guess I need to start making a daily, weekly, or monthly word count goal, then. A good place to start. So far, I've simply written on one story and revised another one. This sounds like a good way to go, though. I wonder how being in NY will affect it; I've not "worked" since 2006. Still... An excellent idea. Thanks!

It's just a totally mental thing with me. I mean, I could scroll through my ms and see: Oh, 50 pages--yay! Or click on the word count, see it, smile, and click off again. Somehow just SEEING THAT BAR and the percentage completed gives me a weird, irrational sense of accomplishment. I'm pretty sure it's a NaNo thing. :)

20K of nothing if this first one doesn't sell, lol. But it's moving along!

If the first one doesn't sell (which would be crazy, 'cause it WILL sell), then you can at least consider this book a writing exercise!
