Tracking Words & Pages

For several years now, I've posted a screenshot at the beginning of the year of my Tracking Sheets for the previous year.

So of course I'm going to do this now:

Total words written: 217,590. 
Total pages revised 1,431.

As you can see, it looks like 2018 was bottom-heavy in the word count department, and top-heavy for the pages edited. This is because I spent about three months at the beginning of the year working on a novel revision that turned into a bit of a rewrite. 

This story took a lot longer to finish than I expected, but the effort paid off because the book turned out the way I hoped it would. 😊

BTW, if you're wondering where I got the very handy spreadsheet that helped me keep track of everything, it's from Sidney Bristol. She used to share it on her blog annually. Although her blog hasn't been updated for a while, you can still get your hands on the basic spreadsheet HERE and update the year.

Either way, I wanted to give her the credit she deserves because I LOVE using this spreadsheet. It really helps me keep track of my daily, monthly and yearly productivity. ☺

This post is purely about word and page counts, but the other day I posted a detailed breakdown of how I did with my 2018 Goals

I've already set up my spreadsheet for 2019 and look forward to adding all my progress.

Here's to another productive year!
