Five-Hundred Word Challenge 888: Word Counter not Counting

This is going to be an interesting writing as the word counter is not working at the moment and so I’m having difficulty discerning as to how far into the writing that I currently am. I’d prefer for it to work as I rely on it quite a lot, but it is not and so I go in blindly and hope for the best.

Well, not entirely blindly. There may be a lot of saving and checking, but the idea is to keep the time down and not let it go up, so it’s one of those “we’ll have to see” type of things.

To be honest, I don’t want to have to deal with this as it makes things a little too cumbersome. I’d rather the thing work and I’d rather it work the way that I require it to work. Instead of working it decided that it would not do so and now I’m stuck here and I feel as though I’m fumbling in an area that is increasing in its darkening and I’ve no torch. Of course this is something that I find rather annoying as I’d rather the thing work so I don’t have to worry about it not working and all that stuff. I don’t want this to drag out longer than it has to and of course if it has to drag out longer than it has to, well, I might just be a little more annoyed than I am letting on, or something.

What is the word count up to at this point? I don’t know; I’m metaphorically blind here. I probably was a little earlier too, but here I am not knowing as to what I am doing and what I am up to and so I keep on stumbling and hope for the best.

I could have reached the word count target by this point; I have no idea. I don’t know as to how much farther I need to go, or if I need to stop and start cutting some of the words out. I don’t want to find out so I’m just going to keep on going. Maybe if I go far enough, this will all loop on itself and I will end up going into a negative word count and then after that I will somehow end up at the required target for this bit of writing which just so happens to be in units of hundreds and a total of five units.

However, if that does not happen, then perhaps I will remain truly lost and therefore there will be no reprieve for me. If that is indeed the case, well… I guess I’ll have to find a way around this.

Of course, that will require a lot of thinking and sitting down and all of that other stuff. Of course I can do all that, but right now I think I would rather panic for no real reason as currently that seems more exciting to me.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:36:67

Still not working at this point.

I feel this has a certain focus to it. Perhaps not as strong as I’d hoped, but it remains an improvement over other recent bits of writing.

Written at home.
