Serious question. I’ve been tracking my daily word count for the last week. I’ve keeping a cumulative track in a spreadsheet as well as a daily count on a calendar. It’s new words, so I just add that day’s count to the total every day.
I’m almost done with the current WIP. I think the next thing will be a revision and expansion of something I didn’t get right the first time but think I know how to fix.
My question is how do I do word count when I’ll be editing and deleting as well as writing. Some scenes will be modified, cut, expanded, that sort of thing. Is there an easy way to keep track of what you’ve done that day?
