***100 words (Hour Two)***

Huh. I really haven’t come up with a format for these hourly posts. Shall I go back and edit the prior post and add ‘(Hour One)’ to the title?

Nah. The title doesn’t count anyway.

Huh. Now is that a fair thing to do, not count the title. I mean, they’re words, too. And it won’t be difficult to do. Just high-light them with the rest of my post, select (not click!) Tools…Word Count and—BAM!—two more words.

I’ll give it some thought. I’m still not sure why I didn’t even include the words in the first place.

Now where was I?

The idea of 100 words per hour first came to during last year’s National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. (Check out their site over at www.nanowrimo.org.) I read in one of the forums (like all the participants, I constantly needed reassurance to achieve the goal) that it was possible to complete the wordcount by simply writing sixty-plus words a hour over eight hours. I tried it out a few times during that month and was amazed how easy it was to not only achieve the sixty plus words, but exceed it.

And I just did right now. See you in the next hour!

Count: 208 words
