Question for Authors:

When I took typing (long ago), words were counted as 5 typed characters (including spaces and punctuation). 

Is this still the case? 

When someone says "I wrote another thousand words" they hit the keyboard 5,000 times (not counting fixing typos and such? 

Does anyone use an actual word count for these announcements, which could severely disadvantage the more erudite writers?

**Thanks all, that's what I wanted to know!**
