Does anyone know how to scramble a manuscript before you send it in for a word count?
I have entered a write a novel in a month contest. . They don"t want to read it, it is an exercise in writing one. The deal is it is only for the month of November, so I have entered late but still hope to achieve my 50,000 word for the end which is Nov 30 at midnight, I have to scramble the manuscript before I cut and paste it to the site for the word count . Can some one tell me how?
I'm guessing that you are doing NaNoWriMo. If so, they have some great people who could help you.
Thanks cloverleaffarm. I am dont know if ill finish i only started sunday and now work gets in the way but i am on 6500 words so far. I am finding it a great challenge.
Wow, that is awesome. I tried it once a couple of years ago, but never got far into it. Good luck!
thanks i am at 7500 words now thanks for the luck i will post here fri at midnight to tell u how fare i did get.
You can do it in MS Word. You need to download a small program called Scramble Assistant first since the scrambling feature is not native to the program. The next time you open Word, it will be an option in the File menu.
Just google "Scramble Assistant MS Word" and you should find several sources for the program.
Edit: Here's the official site. It's a free program.
WORD will give you a word count. Drop down menu under tools. That way you will now exactly for sure. Now, about scrambling, that I have no idea about.
Thank you for all your help with your answers.. For anyone wanting to do this challenge. I found it exciting to see the story unfold before my eyes.. in 6 days i turned out 20503 words. I am happy about that and will finish this novel to edit later
