So this is a pretty cool idea that I heard about from Mur Lafferty’s podcast. http://murverse.com/at-long-last-the-magic-spreadsheet/
Basically it tracks words per day and gives points for every 250 words you write. Plus bonus points if you write multiple days in a row. The idea being to encourage the writing habit.
It’s a clever idea and I’m trying to resist my urge to improve on the formula used to calcuate the points (There’s no need for it to cap out at 2,000 words).
I’m not sure I really agree with rewarding consistancy so much over total word count personally. And I think I would probably do this as a website with various top lists, one being for longest streak, another for largest number of words etc.
Come to think of it, it would be pretty easy to do.
