Word Meters

And, hey, while I'm on a posting spree (and procrastinating on my 11th hour rewrites, hehe) I finally found a replacement for the beloved, now defunct, much-lamented Zokutou Word Meter:

They're slick, easy to make, and display well.  And they have the look of the Zokutou, which I liked. Check out mine in my "Progress" sidebar to the right.

For some other options, check out this post:

Happy Metering!

P.S. Yes, my word count is up again.  I think that's partly due to how LSB calculates, and also not counting the fact that the majority of four chapters are about to get the axe. On that note...

Comment Moderation

I had to turn Comment Moderation on (for older posts) and added word verification to all comments. I like keeping open and easy comments so people feel free to drop me a line, but spammers somehow managed to find me and I'm getting more and more spam comments on some of my Google-trigger posts. Once I get them to go away, I'll come back to the "open and easy" format.  Sorry!

And for those of you thinking, "Why bother? You never post anymore anyway!"'re right. I've been gone a lot. But mainly because I've actually been revising the book. Golden Heart deadline is next week, and I'm in the process of finishing up the third and FINAL(!) draft. Once that puppy ships, I've also got a full request I intend to honor, and I'll begin the query process in earnest after the holidays.  And I should have more time to blog. *g*

In the meantime, follow me on Twitter for my micro-updates (which I can do from my phone--when and if someone develops a Blogger app for the iPhone I am SO there!). My daily life feed is just to the left in the sidebar, and I'll try to get my Writer Focused feed up on the blog soon:
