Track your novel writing progress with this spreadsheet


Writing a novel can be a slow, uneventful and thankless task. Anything that helps you get through the lonely journey to the end and overcome the vicious emptiness of the blank page and the mocking metronome of the cursor – well, anything that helps is to be embraced.

One little gem which is helping me plod onward is a spreadsheet which converts my word count into a pie chart.

So instead of just seeing the number of words I’ve written, I can see my unwritten words shrink as the days pass.

This tool is freely available thanks to the generosity of science-fiction writer E.G. Cosh, who I once met at WriteClub.

Pop over to her website to download your copy of the Novel Progress Tracker.
