WordC0unters Welcome to the club

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. I'm obsessed too. It's okay, it's a disease. We'll get through it together.

Hi, I'm J.F Wiegand, the author of several novels, including my latest release, Pilgrimage of an Android. I 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.

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, I'll be here for you.
