While the feature I discovered is most assuredly not new, it is new to me. The very thorough Camp NaNo gnomes have a feature on the "Edit Novel Info" page (where you create your word count goal, novel title, synopsis, etc.) that allows you to check your official word count. I decided to use it from now on. I also updated my target word count, which changed my stat's a bit. I put in 21,000 but have the sneaky feeling I'll pass that as well. Under-sell and over-perform: that's the key. Actually, no: I don't know how many words to estimate at this point but wanted to make this worth stretching for! Hope your writing is going well and I look forward to cleaning up the camp site with you in a few more days!
