I believe that Lyda needs to lay down about 59,000 words to hit her mark by the end of February. I need 66,000. That seems pretty fair all things considered.
If someone who does word count bars wants to point out a good one for blogger, then I will probably set side by side bars up on the front page. Otherwise it will have to be occasional updates as I intend to write, not mess around with finding bit of code that will show that really, I'm writing. In the meantime, I've got words to put on the page. That being the case, don't expect much in the way of blogging from me. Words come first, critical editing tasks second (I've got two shorts and a novel I need to read for folks), every other task falls somewhere after that.
BTW, if I can manage this it will mean a beta (near finished) draft of a novel in 3 1/2 months with the holidays chewing a big chunk out of the middle of that window. Oh, and I'll almost certainly lose a couple of days in there to galleys.
