And once again, OpenOffice was telling me one thing for word counts (11,187) but now that I'm on a different PC MS Word is telling me something else (10,938). This is soooo annoying! I know it's because I'm switching between different programs while I'm writing, but come on now, people, a word is a word! And that's a huge difference! But I'm going to go with what I had written down at the write-in, the 11,187. (Although I just cut and pasted the text into Notepad and back into the doc to strip the formatting and it still reads 10,938...)
Well anyway, I wrote 2610 words! That's a NEW personal best! (Twice in one week!) And those word wars really do work miracles, there's just something about wanting to get words down on the page because everyone else around you is doing the same thing that just makes you word-vomit into your keyboard. Pretty awesome! I'm going to say I'm 11k in so far until I can sort out the word count issues, which is all kinds of fun.
