It’s Friday - we’re meant to post our word counts.

wc -w reveals: 5656 words total.

I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked this week, but planning to make up for it this weekend.

Today I got some content work done - working on smoothing out the learning process, guiding the user through some intermediate steps.

Julian, you beat me to it every Friday! Must be my time disadvantage living in the PT time zone. Sounds like you’re making great progress so far.

Well, we’re 18 days in - more than halfway through. How’s everybody doing? Any snags you’ve run into or questions as you head into the last weeks?

Cheers, Susannah

Due to review, editing and rewrites here and there I’m having a hard time counting the exact words for this week. Wrote some 750 words today and lots of code that’s the basis for the next section.

Main snag I’ve thought about a lot is professional (as in 3rd party) editing, but haven’t come to any conclusion on that yet.

Here’s to next week being much more productive and about shipping a beta!

Found a lot of time this week due to extended travel with the possibility to write. Nearly 6000 words this week gives some leeway for next weeks, where I will need to do some heavy lifting in restructuring the content and update parts. Then I need to develop a good pitch for finding an editor. Has been an interesting experience so far, the daily and monthly target has helped a lot.

This week I wrote 4640 words. This includes code examples too and some basic markup languages for titles and bullet lists. I’m using: @find . -name *.txt xargs wc -w@ to count everything.

Added another 704 words to the final section. Might have to break this out into an extra chapter.
