I believe I’ve mentioned before how anal I can be about some things. If not, well, consider yourself informed. For instance, I love making spreadsheets and lists, have computer files and filing cabinets logically labeled with group headings, sub-headings and files in order. I’m a dichotomy between that trait and the disorganized mess that is my office. I still say it just looks that way. I know where the important stuff is. The rest is just stuff I might need some day.
Okay, so my mind is disorganized, too. I ‘m digressing already. See, I’ve decided to track my productivity more closely in order to hold myself accountable–and that’s the true subject of today’s post.
I always have a spreadsheet tracking my progress on individual manuscripts, but lately I’ve been working on two WIP’s at once. Therefore, I needed a Total Daily Page Count spreadsheet–don’t you think? I can double check my page count in each WIP spreadsheet as well. I won’t bore you with all the gory details, but the part I’m going to post on here each week will look something like this:

Hey, wake up! All that snoring is shaking my computer.
>Yeah – I’ve got a ton of those spreadsheets too – mainly because I like to see the numbers move along. But when I don’t write, I don’t even bother looking at the spreadsheets. I took a NaNoWrimo one and had the husband concert it for me because it had a lot of lovely charts and bells and whistles. I’m hoping it works *g*
