Before the Magic Spreadsheet, I considered writing 2,500 words a month as productive as I could possibly get. I'm now writing that amount PER WEEK. This thing rocks bells!

Hi there,

Not sure what happened, but my chain got misnumbered a few days ago.  12/15/15  I'm on the DECISBW3 sheet, line 233 under Curt Mercer (ISBW).  If someone could take a look, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks!

Hi All,

Have been away, probably for 12 months. However I am now back in the real world :) Where might my spreadsheets have gone now I'm writing my sequel? I was on ISBW4 I think?

Or should I just bung myself on the end of the latest one? In which case which is the latest one?

Many thanks

Arvo

I discovered Magic Spreadsheet last month through Mur's podcast and have a 21 day streak going. So far, I'm mainly journaling to clear out the cobwebs, but new story ideas and solutions to roadblocks from abandoned stories are starting to creep into my journal entries. Thanks for the help in creating a daily writing habit!

So glad it's working for you. It was a total game changer for me. Write all the words!

A guest post I had over at DIY MFA today.  Thought folks here might be interested since I tout Magic Spreadsheet for getting me this far.

The date and day of the week row in Google Plus 2 for March are not "frozen," meaning it's difficult for me to keep track of which date I'm entering my word count on because I can't see the date.
