Word Count: Where We Are

This week marks the midterm of the semester, and as such, the halfway point of the class.  Today, the Advanced Fiction students tallied up two word counts:  One for the total number of words typed this semester for the 50,000 word goal, be it planning for their novel project, part of the novel itself, or unrelated writing.  The 50,000 word goal includes work on one or more novel projects (the students are allowed to change their novel at any point in the process) as well as planning for a project or unrelated writing, such a journal of the week’s events.  The purpose of the 50,000 goal is to ensure that students keep writing from week to week.  The second word count consisted of the number of words written specifically for the novel.
