I'm thinking about running progress updates on this blog again, and I wanted to give the NaNoWriMo Word Meter over at languageisavirus.com a shot. It's a beauty of a word tracker, because it's really nothing more than some CSS you can post into a web page and get a stable word count image; it doesn't depend on languageisavirus.com staying up and running. You don't even have to have it link back to them, although it's only polite to give them credit.
So, let me know what you think about the aesthetics here. First up, here's my work in progress, if I assume it'll end up being 5,000 words:
1418 / 5000 words. 28% done!
Here's what the manuscript I sent to Black Library ended up being. 10,000 words was the minimum:
13223 / 10000 words. 132% done!
And here's what I've written today, with a daily goal of 1,000 words:
152 / 1000 words. 15% done!
Hrm. Looks like I've got some work to do...
