Don’t Count Your Words

peep peep It’s not a good thing. You get obsessed with the wordcount and not the words. You start to take shortcuts, or want to, because you’re not looking at the right thing, for the right reason, and you’re not doing the work.

I know this and I know it to be true, it’s a truism it’s so true, and yet I just did it. Fuck.

Don’t count your words. Ever. Nothing good can come of it. Wordcounts don’t matter. Words do.

Wordcounts are for editors.
