Title: Include illustration notes in word count?
Post by: Anthony on March 21, 2013, 09:18 AM
In a picture book manuscript, do illustration notes count towards the word count of the manuscript? I'm guessing they don't, but I'd hate for it to look like I was being sneaky by leaving them out.

No, they don't count.
