About
Have you ever checked your book's word count, written a few paragraphs, then checked again? Well, then you've come to the right place. We're obessed too. It's okay, it's a disease ... but we'll get through it together. We created this website to help you better gauge your book's word count, because the more examples you see and the more advice you read, the more confident you'll be. Can we cure your word count disease? Of course not; you're a word counter too and always will be. But we can contain it. So browse around until you feel confident enough to start writing without peeking at your word count every couple of paragraphs. And if you relapse, don't worry, we'll be here for you.
