Fun With Word Count Statistics

Fun With Word Count Statistics

While writing my post yesterday about my word count statistics, I ran some other numbers through the ol’ spreadsheet and came up with some other interesting facts.

Writing Again

Every year on New Year’s Day, I make at least a few wild resolutions that even I know I won’t be able to keep. And, usually, by Day Two of the year, I’ve broken at least one of them. It’s gone beyond a tradition into a sort of running joke.
