Monthly Word Count Goal Challenge Introduction

This is a very flexible challenge that you can use for any kind of writing. Basically you choose your own word count goal for the month, and you write until you reach it. Easy peasy, right? Well, let's make those goals challenging enough that it's not. 🙂

You set word count goals for a specific project for the month, or an overall word count goal. The calendar below is downloadable. You can print it and use it as your monthly word count tracker if you'd like. There's a place to note your monthly word count goal, daily goals (if you opt to set them), daily progress, and weekly progress.

As always, you can create your own threads in this section of the forum to share your challenge progress, ask questions, or request tips from other community members.

Good luck!
