Word Count

Happily I reached my 1500 word goal again yesterday – in fact I wrote 1728 words so I was very happy with that. We went out for a meal with friends during the evening and after drinking half a bottle of red wine I was even happier! Until I lay in bed unable to sleep and began working out my word count – one of those useless things you do when you can’t sleep.

I had written for six hours, so if I took my word count up to say 1800 to make it a nice round figure, divided by 6, it meant I’d written 300 words per hour. I then divided that by 60 to see how many words I had written in a minute and came up with 5.

FIVE WORDS A MINUTE!

I stopped thinking at that stage.
