I worked out another way to see how much I need to write to reach the daily goal. Maybe this will keep me from constantly updating and checking my spreadsheet every five minutes….
Daily goal: 1667
Words written: 2008
Total goal: 31,667
Total written: 34,249
Report Card: At this rate, you will finish on Nov 28.
I need a minimum of 1431 words per day to finish on time.
And my notes to story ratio is roughly 1 to 31, bringing my anticipated full draft to a little over 130,000 words.
