    The content guidelines suggests having a maximum of 3,000 words, this implies anything within 1 - 2,999 words limit word count is acceptable. The word count for my work, entry number eight is within the accepted word count. In fact, my work contains just 2,500 words. So, it's not beyond the acceptable word count. I like you to reconsider entry eight and review my entry. I spent days on it
