Word Count

Today I have to write something (in plain text format) that has roughly 400 words.

I don't like using word processors, so I don't really want to break out MS Word or Pages just to write three paragraphs. Besides, I want this to be a .txt file and I don't want to think about fonts, formats, or anything else. So I'm using TextEdit. But TextEdit doesn't have a word count function.

So far my best idea is to also open up a Terminal window and use wc.

Words written so far? About 50. The easy ones. Not going to be an easy project.
