5,812 only a thousand-ish words before I can hit the sack! I feel like I should put something on my head to help me motivate me to sprint... okay, I have the medical disclaimer to the meds that are suppose to help kick this icky cold on my head. I feel better already.

Ugh, with all my school work, I have not been able to get ANY writing done. I doubt I will win this year.

@Lizzy Zamora


It depends on word length. I saved a Word Document (albeit in Open Office) with my name on it and nothing else (David), a five-letter world in Times New Roman 12 font. I sort of guestimated that that your average word length will be five letters, but I also saved two other word documents with one one-letter word (D) and one ten-letter word (Undefeated)

Here are my results:
They were all 12KB. If you're wondering how that works out, see here

I'm sure the file size decreases if you write it in Notepad or a similar program in .txt or even .rtf formats.

Does anybody know how big of a flash drive one would need to back up a 50,000 word novel?

I just got a persuasive essay assignment about Greek mythology that's due Friday. This is not going to be an easy first week.
