750 word limit and the topic is loose so writers can go in any direction they like. Nature can be about animals etc or human nature etc
Originally posted by SuzianneIf it's only slightly over i wouldnt be incurring a penalty - if over like 900 words or so i would just cut it off at the end - or send it back saying too big
And I asked this before, but what software do people use that keeps track of words?
Not a fan of Word or Office, I'd just use Notepad if it counted words.

Yeah, I know, I'm looking into add-ons I can snap into Notepad or Wordpad, actually.
I'll share if I find a good one.
