Tackling your first draft?

This will make it fun.

With this free word count tracker, you'll be able to track your progress as you write your first draft. The tracker includes motivational sayings, progress updates, and even tips on your book's length, depending on your genre!

Just print out the tracker and fill it in however you'd like — color in the box with a colored pencil or marker, or just put a checkmark in the box. And the tracker goes all the way up to 120,000 words for those heftier novels.
