Aw, I'm sorry, Maxi... D: Word count can be frustrating.

Are you having trouble with word count for just one story or with all of them? Your description skills have improved incredibly over the past year, you know. :D That really does help the word count of chapters. If you want to make it a bit longer, try to always add some kind of description to something someone said, even if it's brief.

EXAMPLE:

Instead of,
Bob said, "I don't know what to do!"
"Hmm...let me think," Bill replied. "Wait, I've got it!"
"What do you've got?"
"The answer, stupid."
"Ohhhh. Good!"

Write,
Bob pulled at his hair and said, "I don't know what to do!"
"Hmm...let me think," Bill replied. He stayed silent for a long moment, his brow furrowed. A smile suddenly spread across his face. "Wait, I've got it!"
Bob stared at him blankly. "What do you've got?"
Bill rolled his eyes. "The answer, stupid," he huffed.
Bob nodded slowly. "Ohhhh. Good!"

See how that makes it a bit longer? ^_^ Just adding those simple tags helps the word count, plus helps the reader experience what's going on. It's a skill can be a bit hard to develop, but once you've got it, it's like riding a bike--you don't forget how to do it, and you don't even have to think about it.

AWESOME. O_O XD Tell me what you think of it!!!

Thanks, Ash. <:^J I just need to work on it a bit more.

France is so "Yep, I'll just be standing here...no problem.". XD Book Two of FW is, like, 800 words but now, I think I can make it over 2 000.

For Max:
So, in a nutshell, seasons 1 through 2 of Hetalia is called "Axis Powers" and seasons 3 through 4 is called "World Series" so...try not to get those two mixed up while you're searching for episodes. <:^D

Axis Powers episode 1:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_i-XL_fm6E

Not all of the English dubbed episodes are up, so, at one point, you'll have to start reading the English subs. Sorry. :^B

PASTAAAAAAAAAAAAA. 8D

You're welcome! I hope that helped. <:^D

XD That's actually Germany. (.....All these online "Which Hetalia Character Are You?" quizzes keep telling me I'm most like Germany...o_o...which...kind of makes sense...and that scares and amuses me at the same time! XD XD DX DX)
