I did more work today than the word count indicator shows. Chapter 6 needed a pretty hefty rewrite, and now there are less words there than there used to be, which hurt in the indicator. I’m over 45k words now, though.

Also, this is the debut of my new indicator. Still a little crude getting it up on the blog. The idea is that each color band represents the number of chapters that are of a particular length. The green ones are between 2000 and 2500 words, the yellow between 1800 and 2000, the orange between 1600 and 1800, red from 1000 to 1600, and dark red below 1000 words. The goal is to have as much of the chart green by the end as I can. I think I’ll only post the chart weekly. I still need to get the hang of how to create nice looking charts in OpenOffice.
