Greetings Fellow Authors,

My final, final, hopefully final revision has brought me up to 68,950 words. Egads. How do I round this off?

Thanks! I was afraid of that. I was told my max is 70,000. So should I just say 70,000? *biting nails*

Oh no, not another word count thread!
:D

The answer depends on how you got that number and how many words you'd like to have.

I'm sure other responses will be more illuminating, but I'd say just round up to 69,000.

Okay Monkey! I'm still accepting more opinions. :)

Hey now, we haven't had the word count argument in ages :D

And ditto the rounding it up to 69K.
