Daily Prompt: Progress

500words 150x150

Jeff Goins is hosting a challenge for writers: to write at least 500 words every day for the month of January. There are many reasons I love Scrivener for writing, and one is the session target. These little progress bars start red and gradually fade more and more until you reach your goal and the bar turns green. The above photo is my progress bar at the end of the day yesterday. I put a little sticker on my calendar and I’m thrilled that I’m off to a great start. I know it’s only one day, but you gotta start somewhere, right?

Anyone that wants to join me, feel free to leave a comment below and we can cheer each other on.

  1. cool idea – I have to write way more then that to consider my day productive – or I’ll never get these novels done – but I love the concept. 500 words can seem like such a daunting task at times! Happy Writing everybody!

      Thanks, Claudia!

      I’m struggling to get into the habit of writing everyday, so I think this will be good for me.

      Good luck with your novels!

    Got to go to Scrivener and check this out. Thanks, Rebecca. Now for my 500 words for today (getting a late start, but I had an important lunch date–with my grandson).

      The session targets are part of the project targets, under the Project menu. I set my session goal at 500 words and my sessions reset at midnight. I have a project for short fiction, where every story is its own page/scene in the overall project folder. So no matter what story I work on, or even if I start a new one, they all count towards my goal. 😉
