Leah’s “Word Count”

Just a quick update to my Progress Report post from this morning: during this fifth cycle, I’ve been counting how many words my main character speaks during the course of the novel. By my count, the total is 466 words — 466 words that are enclosed in quotation marks. However, 357 of those words were spoken during Leah’s Egypt report. If you don’t count those words, then she only speaks 109 words.

109 (or 466) out of 83,000 words.

Of course, I do hint at other things she says that I don’t record in quotation marks, but there’s no question that Leah speaks the least of all of the major characters.
