Just a quick hello to everyone and welcome to 2016!

For those who might like to use it, I have uploaded a 2016 copy of the spreadsheet that I use for keeping track of my wordcount all year long. The explanation for using this spreadsheet is over here.

Also, for those who might be interested in using the little template I use for noting my stats each month, here it is again.



And finally, the new spreadsheet for everyone's progress is here. I'm streamlining it this year, and will add in people as I know what you're signing up for. So if you don't see your name on it yet, don't fret. If you want to set up an automatic goal for each month, just let me know in the January sign-up post.

Let's have a great 2016 and get a lot of words written!

Hello everyone! So glad to be able to step up and help keep this community going in 2015 and beyond. I've gotten so much out of this community over the years, and I hope y'all will, too...

So back in August of this year, [profile] everlasting_dream and I got talking about the little template I post each month with my word count info. That expanded into me kind of explaining about the spreadsheet I created to use back in 2010. I've been slowing adjusting the columns on the spreadsheet each year, refining and finetuning the whole thing. I think my 2015 version may well be my final version, but I thought that about the 2014 version, so... LOL!

Anyway, the discussion ended up with me agreeing to share my spreadsheet and my process with y'all, in case you want to do something similar to track your writing throughout the year.

So I have an example from this month's tab in the spreadsheet to give you an idea of what I do. The only thing different in the 2015 version is that there's an additional column between Twitter and Notes that will give a total count for each day. Otherwise, the whole spreadsheet is the same as 2014.

I hope that's made sense to everyone. If not, let me know and I'll try to make it easierto understand. And if you want to use either the spreadsheet orthe template, feel free.

And yes, this post will count toward today's word count totals.

Welcome!

This is the mirror community of [livejournal.com profile] thedailywriter. It was inspired by the [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo challenge that occurs every November, in which participants make a commitment to write 100 words per day every day in November. This community will serve as a place to encourage you to write every single day, whether it be 100 words or 1000 words, as long as you get something down on paper.

Even with our 3-year run over at Livejournal, we're still open to suggestions about new content and challenges. Currently, we offer monthly sign-ups where users commit to their desired word count goal. At the end of the month, they are accountable for commenting in with those word counts.

We see this as a place where people can come to be inspired, motivated, and supported, perhaps by quotes, images, discussion, or by asking for feedback or help getting through a challenge or writing block.

The community is friendly to all sorts of writing endeavors - fanfic, original fiction, creative nonfiction, school essays, whatever needs to be written, basically.

Please feel free to post any quotes, sites, images, songs, what-have-you so that we can be sure to have motivation EVERY day. Writing is hard, lonely work. Let's make it a little less so :)
