This page is a focus area for my writing. In it, I will list long term to-do's that are aimed at supporting my writing.

Here is where I will list to-do's for writing-centric projects as well as trainings. I will document writing projects I am engaged in and lastly, a writing log to track my writing for these projects as well as practice.

To-Do List



Writing Projects


Writing Log

The writing log can be as detailed as you need. Tag your writing session with the project, the date, and enter your starting and ending word counts. If you track time, input your time in minutes and document your location.

My goal was to track my word count with time—how many words I write in an hour—and to see if the location had an impact. Open each session and add details and comments about your writing session to review at a later time.

Feel free to delete these call-out blocks as well as the formula code blocks below.
