Discover Progress! and how to track it

Moonday Mania

a blog for writers on writing

I’ve started Nanwrimo this week and I’ll be posting my progress on my NEWS page. And just to make it fun I’ve started a counter to keep track of my progress. Here’s what it looked like on day one, Thursday, before I had written a word.

And here’s what it looks like now that I’ve been writing for five days! (IN case you can’t figure it out, this is the “shocked” look.)

If you are curious as to where I am and what I’m feeling as I go through the NANOWRIMO process, just check the meter!

Oh, and if you want a meter for yourself (and I know all of you do!) the code is on the Writertopia page HERE. Thanks peeps at Writertopia!

Another terrific way I’ve been keeping track of my wordcount all year is the amazing spreadsheet by Jamie Raintree. Jamie has done what I (in my Excel inept fashion) would never be able to do. She not only put together a year long spread sheet with a calendar and space for mulitple projects that does all the math. It looks fantastic too!

Here is another picture. I’m hoping she does this again for 2013 because I certainly don’t have the know how. If she does I’ll post the link for you, but in the meantime Jamie has some fantastic writer helps. And if you want to check out some free quality women’s fiction, she also regularly posts her writing. The Stretch Mark Club rocks!

How do you track your writing? Do you have any fun tricks up your sleeve like Jamie or the peopple at Writertopia?
