Since it’s the start of 2016, I was looking for a new solution to keep track of my daily wiring word counts.

I had been using a Word file, but this has limitations, such as not adding up the total number of words for each month/year (maybe it can do this, but I didn’t want to get that deep into programming it.)

Building an Excel spreadsheet from scratch is beyond my patience and interest. There had to be a better way! Surely someone had some good spreadsheet they were willing to share? I took to the Web.

Today I found a great “mother lode” of FREE Excel spreadsheets made just for writers!

They are by visual artist (and big Star Wars fan) Svenja Gosen.  She not only designs the spreadsheets especially for writers, she puts her original artwork in them. Amazing!

These sheets track daily word counts and display them in a variety of ways, including graphs, yearly word count tracking, and a lot more!

She asks no fee for her spreadsheets, but takes donations (custom enhancement requests with donations go to the front of the line), so why not put a few dollars her way if you like what’s she done? Might even hire her for a cover ;)

Get her FREE Excel sheets here:

Happy 2016!
