Why You Need A Writing Progress Bar
You all know I'm not doing NaNo, but I am writing. And a couple of days ago I put a word count progress bar on my blog. Why you ask?
1. I am a visual person. I like actually seeing progress toward my goal and the progress bar moving up motivates me to put every little word on there to push it just a little more.
2. It makes me accountable. Everyone can see what I have or haven't done.
3. It gives me a sense of accomplishment. Even on the days when my word count is low I can see how far I've come.
If you have a blog, this website has some free Writing Progress Bars you can use.
If you have an android phone, this app can track your progress.
Try it for a little while and just see if it doesn't help motivate you a little more. I know it worked for me!
