I’m going to be up front and confess that, once again, I’ve chickened out of attempting National Novel Writing Month. Maybe next year.
But for those of you who are, you might be interested a handy little tool I made, called “Novel Biographer”. It is an Excel spreadsheet in which you can record your daily writing progress and it generates all sorts of useful facts and charts about how you’re getting on, motivating you to do more.
I’ve put together a pre-configured version especially for NaNoWriMo that you can download from here: Novel Biographer – NaNoWriMo 2011 Edition
