Why would you need an online word counter?

Focus on the Main Point
About Word Counter

My outlook changed somewhat after soliciting outstanding essays from both sides of the desk. For that project, the essays that our colleagues chose as the very best were significantly longer than typical ones, on average, and often exceeded words. A couple of the essays were over 1, words. But if a really superb essay runs long, there is no reason to hit the panic button.

The good ones always get read. It is worth noting that one of the very finest essays I have seen —and one that was praised to the counselor by no less than the Yale admissions office — was 78 words. I believe students should spend at least as much time editing their essays as they do writing them.

I always do this! I tend to write double the word count and spend the same amount of time editing it, it not more time! They tell you to write, but not to edit. I would have loved it if I was given a document that I had to keep the same meaning and important points, but shorten it by words. This is a new problem for me.

I thought that being under was bad, but being over seems to be even more difficult. Editing is a lot like writing. The more you practice, the better you will get at it. Seriously, who ever needs to reduce their essay word count?

Everyone I know is always trying to make their word count. Do these people just write random things to get that high of a word count? That makes no sense…. I tend to be wordy in my first drafts, and so when I go back through I cut a lot of words while editing. If I only wrote the exact number of words required the first time through, my grades would be a lot worse than they are.

When I edit, I make my essays a lot better. I think most people do. Although they are completely opposite problems, they are just as difficult for both sides. It is, but those needing more words can source and add information, arguments and comparisons. What if you have a lot to say on the topic?

Some of us like to write with detail and that can also make your word count extremely high. By toning down your piece and being a bit more general, it might also help decrease your word count. I recently have found that I no longer have trouble reaching assigned word counts, but now I am constantly going over them.

Even worse, I think being over word count is even harder than being under it. Who would have thought? I think this is a common problem as people become better writers. As you become more confident in your writing, you tend to write more. The previous writing problems turn into editing problems. Just like it to practice to increase your word count, it will take practice to reduce your word count as well. I happened to be a wordy writer. I never seem to be able to stay under the assigned word count on my essays.
