Counting my words with Scrivener
One of the parts of being an author I’ve always struggled with was productivity in terms of word count. I’ve accepted the fact that I’m a slow writer. It’s fine! I just need to spend more time writing, is all.
Because I’m kinda dumb sometimes, it never occurred to me to keep track of my word count and maybe set word count goals. I knew I could do this on Scrivener, the writing software I’ve had since fricking 2014 and which I love dearly (I’m not even exaggerating), but I’ve never used the word count features properly until last month.
I’ve decided my free writing-related posts on Patreon will be going up on Wednesday every week. Writing Wednesday! It did not get off to an auspicious start, as I barely made it yesterday — I published the post five minutes to midnight. Oh boy.
