I spent the whole year without keeping track of my writing, 90% because I had no laptop until a few months ago. I’ve never tracked my writing until around 3 years ago when I started investing more time writing fiction, because I wanted to an author/writer, and started reading stuff online. One of the things was to keep to track of your daily word count, but then my writing fiction thing got sidestepped for my other goals.
So just recently I remembered I did have a file with all my stories documentation, dates of when I started and finished them & also their total word count, and thought it’d be cool to keep track of my blog too. Mostly because this is where I’ve been writing the most.
