Suggestion: Built-in progress tracker/writing meter Laura S. 7/1/12 11:53 AM
Documents has a word counter, but it would be cool if there was a progress tracker you could opt to use that shows what percentage you have accomplished. This tool would be handy for students with paper assignments requiring a minimum word count, as well as authors who are trying to write longer pieces. 

A user would be able to choose from some suggested word lengths (for example: novel = 50k, novella = 20k, novellette = 7,500) or be able to input their own. There are many free html counters for posting on a blog, some shown here, but if you don't have a website or don't want your information public, then you can't use them and they aren't automatically counting the words.
