Writing Work Logging

Today I am starting an eight week task of logging all the writing work I do, by word count and completed items.

I have created a spreadsheet, one line for each of the next eight weeks, in which I will log the following information.

  • Journal words per week
  • Blog post words per week
  • Fiction and non fiction words per week
  • Fiction and non-fiction items completed per week

To me, the main item is the completed articles count, which will be the key indicator of success as a writer, how much can you complete.

Only time will tell. There are obviously other indicators that could be used as well, such as eBooks sold if you have anything published. However, I think this will do for now.

Out of this, I want to measure my commitment to writing, and if that commitment isn’t there to accept that and move on.
