Tracking your Writing Time

Are you trying to keep track of the time you spend writing?

I just noticed something today that I have never really paid much attention to. If you are using Microsoft Office and you click on the tab for file you will see in the upper right hand side a side bar that contains all the information you would ever need to prove you are spending time working on your manuscript.

As you can see I have spent a total of 1200+ minutes while working on Along Came Neil. I think this is pretty cool since I tend to not keep track of my writing time – I just write.

I once tried to keep a log, as in time sheets to track my time spent working on my stories. It just wasn’t happening. I could never remember after the second day to log my time on the sheet. It still sits with many blank days, and I know that I have been working and working and working on this and other manuscripts.

So huh – I guess there is a way to make notes of your time.

Pretty cool, I think J
