counting words

Word count has an important function in parts of this story.

I need to calculate whether the speaker can say it all in an hour.

If not, the speaker has to send the listener off to come back the next morning.

I picked a limited time frame, but now I have to figure out what to fit. And if necessary, send off the heroine to do something to kill time for a day.

But first I should see if it's really a problem. sigh
