Serious Daily Writing Habit

Develop a writing habit by setting and tracking a daily writing goal.

Good writing requires practice. This plugin helps you to form a daily writing habit by setting a daily writing goal and checking your progress against that goal.

In the Writing goals page you can define your desired writing target and the number of days to track. This second parameter is used when visualizing the report.

A widget in the dashboard will immediately remind you the writing goal and give feedback on how far you are today from the goal.

In the Report page you’ll see a bar chart displaying the word counts from the last days plus two horizontal lines:

  1. The target goal
  2. Your writing average in the last days

This will help you to quickly see your progress (and hopefully, encourage you to write more!).

Install and Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Does removing text hampers achieving my writing goal?

No. Removing text from old posts does not damages your word counting

Are HTML characters or shortcodes counted as words?

No. They are all stripped before the counting takes place

Can I set a weekly goal?

Not for now. Only a daily goal is supported.

What about sites with multiple authors?

The word counting process is global. Right now, all the writing of all authors is added up.
