Tonight, I pounded out over 5,000 words in my Camp NaNo piece.
Admittedly, this course was taken because my friend logged in a higher total word count than me today and I am so ridiculously competitive that I had to exceed her count (sorry, Amanda!). But, another reason I wrote so much was because it is somehow one of the singular most wonderful moments in my life to watch a little bar graph increase as I log my words.
Seriously – it’s better than chocolate.
The widget I chose for my WordPress site works beautifully, showing how many words I have logged and the percentage of the 50,000 total I have done. HOWEVER (and this is a big one) the little blue bar graph is stuck at around ten percent.
Maddening. Frustrating. Disheartening. Ugh.
Any suggestions for a word count widget that works and will allow me to judge my success at writing by a little bar graph that actually moves with each new word count entry?
I will be forever grateful – and I may even provide you with some chocolate! 🙂
