My friend Lindi introduced me to this cute little word meter I now have on the left side of the page. It’s a progress meter that helps you keep track of how many words you have written. So far, I’m at 6,500 on my revision. Not quite 10% of my target of 75,000, but moving up anyway, which is the point.
If you’d like to add one of these to your site, check out Writertopia.
