The Glorious Thing That is the Magic Spreadsheet.

Hello, Writing Rogues!

During the course of the Pikes Peak Writers Conference I learned of a wonderful little tool called the Magic Spreadsheet which, after a week has kept me writing every day. It starts at level one with a word count goal of 250 and as you meet your goal each day it gives you points for chains and exceeding your word count, allowing you to level up accordingly. It's become a fun way for me to push myself forward and write more consistently.

Should you be an aspiring writer and want to give it a go, you can find the spreadsheet itself here, as it's moved to a new Google Doc since it's original posting.

Good luck and happy hunting!


  1. This must really work! Marilyn asks, "How do you credit yourself for editing, since editing doesn't consist of new words?"

  2. I hadn't thought of it really. It's designed mostly to keep you writing new material rather than editing.
