So I'm working on the cover page for my novel manuscript. I get how the layout works and all my question is for the word count do you actually put the count or estimate? 53000 or 53489? Not sure if you always round or when it comes to the manuscript do you put actual number. Thanks!

Round up or down to the nearest thousand. Putting in the exact number marks you as an amateur.

If you are writing for a newspaper or magazine, round up or down to the nearest hundred.
