I think that mine will be right around 30 to 35 thousand words when I'm done. But that's using Word and their counter. Word count is completely different in professional publishing and if you are using MS Word for yours the published count would be more (they count the white spaces too).
Have you thought about doing Nanowrimo in November?
I as well use word. It is fairly accurate, however I have seen profesional softwares that are much better. Also been looknig at screenplay software.
I might do that in november, has to check schedule for any time off.
Does have a full time job...
