Word Count Motivation

Sometimes I need a little motivation to just get words on the page.

With my current wip, I actually think my total word count is a little low. I’ve gone back and done some character work, and now I need to flesh them out and write some more scenes that make sense within the arc of the story. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve pledged to my accountability partner that I’ll be writing 1000 words a day. Some days it’s a struggle, so I came up with a tracker to give myself some encouragement to keep going:


Each block represents 100 written words. With this I can give myself a pat on the back for the words I have managed to scrape off the recesses of my mind, and a way to push myself toward the daily goal  of 1000.

Would this work for you?

  1. This is such an awesome idea! I normally just write out 1000 a few dozen times and then cross off every 1000 words, have been for 4 years now, but I love the idea of adding it to my bullet journal!
