I found the great word meters on my sidebar at Svenja Liv's site a while ago. Sorry, I don't remember who's blog I saw them on first.
Now that I have achieved an acceptable word count for three novels, I need to track my edits. I've seen some people track edits by word count, but I think that's overkill for me. I'm going to take it one chapter at a time and only add myself a little sliver of color on the widget if I think the chapter is completely done. It's like a tiny little reward for a lot of work.
I used Svenja's word count widget and modified it very slightly to add labels and a line break between the two widgets for each book.
If you're wondering why I'm doing this and not writing or editing, I think I'm having a compulsion to nest the way women do just before the baby's born. Hopefully I'll be having triplets soon (books, not babies).
Do you track edits?
