What Counts

I’ve got two counts going on right now in my life: word counting and calorie counting.

As I’m editing my Book 5, I’m keeping a rough estimate of word count. I’m not restricted by a certain word count, but it’s always good to be aware of it as I’m writing for middle-readers. This audience usually reads books between 36,000—54,000 words in length.

As I’m trying to shed a few pesky pounds, I’m keeping track of my calorie intake per day (thanks to a great app). It’s really been helping me make healthier choices, refrain from snacking, and curb my appetite. I hope to lose 5 pounds in the next month or so.

And the count continues…
