The stats page on the NaNoWriMo website is a wonderful, addictive tool. It has unquestionably boosted my productivity, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
Now I’m on the hunt for a similar progress tracking tool that I can use year round.
The points I find most attractive about the NaNoWriMo page include:
*The bar graph
*Over-all goal and words-a-day goal, which both have progress bars
*Average words per-day bar
I’ve been pointed in the direction of a few tracking systems that utilize a couple of these things, but not one that includes them all in a user-friendly format, the way that the NaNo page does.
If you happen to stumble upon a similar app or on-line tool, I’d appreciate a shout. Also, if you have a tool that you like better than the NaNo stat page, let me know!
