Okay, just curious...should I round up the word count if it's, say, 70713 to 71000?? Or should I stick to the lower end and say 70000? This is probably really stupid, but I'm trying to figure this out and, for some reason, it's taking waaaay too long to figure out....
Do I Round Up?

I always round up -- normally to the nearest thousand. 1000 words is equivalent to about 4 book pages (for MG/YA books), which won't make a world of difference when it comes to potential publishing.
That's just my opinion, though.

I always think an odd number feels more authentic as well. If you put 70,000, the agent might think you just picked a round number and it could be 67,000 or 72,000, but writing out 71,000 shows them that it's exact.
