My word counter has finally moved, and I have something to blog about. I was stuck in the story a little bit, and trying too hard to get round it. Once I stopped thinking about solutions then the perfect thing pops into my head!

I’ve also been working on the cover for book II of Song of the Arkafina, which will be coming out in paperback on March 10th, I hope…

To add a cute litte word counter widget like mine, do the following:

1. From the Dashboard, look at “Right now” and click “widgets”

2. Add a new text widget and give it an appropriate title.

3. Paste in the following HTML: (Thanks to Andy for this!)

<div style=”width:175px;height:15px;background:#33FFFF;border:1px solid #000000;”><div style=”width:10%;height:15px;background:#00CCCC;font-size:8px;line-height:8px;”><br></div></div>1000 / 100000 words. 10% done!
