So, I just looked up the file. Instead of only typing entries from that summer, I began on January 1, 2001, and ended on 6/19/01, for a total of 14, 318 words. I'm not sure right now how many "empty" days are in between those dates, nor if I have any (probably on-line) fake journal entries for anything later. It seems as if I should, as I quoted (supposedly) from later entries, and can vaguely remember creating entries for them. There is, since I'm a random access type, the distinct possibility that the entries in the file are NOT in calendar order, but random order. Oh, joy! What a mess that will make to get under control. At any rate, by recording the starting number, keeping track of additions/deletions to them, as I did for Mountain Lover, I can easily separate out the new from the old. IF I can actually refrain from editing (fat chance, given my personality,) I can just subtract the two end number for original file/final number to arrive at this November's total.
