DON'T FORGET TO VALIDATE! Scroll over your "words so far" on the top of the page, and click "I am ready to validate my novel" when the drop-down appears.

Validate early! If you can help it, don't wait until midnight tonight to validate, when everyone else in our time zone will be slowing down the site.

Remember, you can still update your word count after your validate. So if you validate 50k and then write more, you can still update the word count number.

If you're handwriting, or typing across multiple devices, you can use lipsum.com (a word count generator) to help you get a block of text to paste into the validation box.

Best of luck in the final hours!
