sofiaviolet: NaNoWriMo - easy peasy (nano: no plot)

Words: Well, uh. That's the thing.

Word tells me I have 6180 as of writing this entry. The NaNo word counter tells me I have 6267. This is good, actually, but the discrepancy is really bugging me when it comes to my super-detailed spreadsheet.

I am doing fine with regards to standard NaNo targets, but my personal goal was 2500 per day, and I haven't hit it yet this month. I mean, I have some excuses - burlesque on the 1st, random Amanda Palmer show on the 2nd. And it doesn't help that I'm behind three of my writing buddies right now (of seven who actually seem to be doing NaNo this year). Way to make me feel inadequate, guys (I still ♥ you).

Here, have a quote from the part of the story I'm not supposed to be working on yet:
He ducks his head, bites his lip – he's going to puke butterflies all over her if he opens his mouth, 'I like you' and 'I'm nervous' and 'please be okay with me' and 'please believe I'm okay.'
Perhaps I should do something with [personal profile] brother_marcus? I mean, I am writing his story for NaNo.

Some wordcounts disregard words like "a" and "the", and some don't, right?

That's a good wordcount, bb.

Perhaps Word only counts words over three letters? I know I can change the setting of the little widget I use for wordcounting to ignore anything under a certain number of letters.

Good luck with the writing!

So you're basically...four hundred words behind for the start of the 5th day. Quitcher worrying. :D I get you, though, I am absolutely driven stark mad by the discrepancies in various counting programs. I know it shouldn't bother me, but it DOES.
