ERR wrote:I decided to write a letter to the newspaper, in the newspaper it says less than 200 words, so I wrote a short letter and at the end counted the words 311 I thought "drats" it does not look like 300 words to me, without deleting any sentences chopped out a few words replaced some words for fewer words, and before long got it down to 294 words, <drats again> so I closed down the file, thinking often when I go back to a story I wrote I find words missing, wrong words used, errors, just to name three problems, and I was right, I waited a couple of hours opened up the file found a word or two missing from a sentence, I counted the words again and got 140 words, is this new maths or what?
I could of finger counted the words, but it was easier to think drats.
Before I posted here I did a posting search on "Word count" and found posting on "Word count over counts words"
