Author Resource: Word Count Spreadsheet

I’m starting a new blog series for fellow authors. I’ll share tools I use in my own writing and publishing business. (Click the menu item at the top of the page to see all my Author Resources.)

First, this is a simple spreadsheet to track the number of words your writing. (Edit: It’s updated to include 2023.) It’ll automatically add up your weekly (Sunday – Saturday), monthly, and annual totals. Just enter the number of words in the white cell next to the date, and it’ll do the work for you. There’s even a column to enter goals and another column to let you know how many words you still need in a week, month, or year to meet your goal.

You can download your own copy from Dropbox by clicking here. If you don’t have Microsoft Excel, just download it and import it into Google Sheets or whatever other spreadsheet program you use.

Feel free to share this with others, preferably by pointing them to this blog post.
