Since it’s the start of 2016, I was looking for a new solution to keep track of my daily wiring word counts.
I had been using a Word file, but this has limitations, such as not adding up the total number of words for each month/year (maybe it can do this, but I didn’t want to get that deep into programming it.)
Building an Excel spreadsheet from scratch is beyond my patience and interest. There had to be a better way! Surely someone had some good spreadsheet they were willing to share? I took to the Web.
Today I found a great “mother lode” of FREE Excel spreadsheets made just for writers!
They are by visual artist (and big Star Wars fan) Svenja Gosen. Â She not only designs the spreadsheets especially for writers, she puts her original artwork in them. Amazing!
These sheets track daily word counts and display them in a variety of ways, including graphs, yearly word count tracking, and a lot more!
She asks no fee for her spreadsheets, but takes donations (custom enhancement requests with donations go to the front of the line), so why not put a few dollars her way if you like what’s she done? Might even hire her for a cover
