125 Words Per Minute
I always forget how long a written sermon needs to be to fit into a given length of time, partially because I write the sermon in 12-point single-space with 0.5" margins, and then when it comes time to preach, I switch over to 1.5-space or double-space, at 18-point font, with a 3" margin at the bottom. That's a lot to keep track of.
The easiest way for me to remember is to just know my words per minute, and use the Tools/Wordcount tool in OpenOffice or Word.
I'm sure I'll eventually get into the groove, but for now, I'm leaving this post as a bookmark.
