I’ve been looking at word count spreadsheets prepared by Excel-proficient writers, and while I’ve been impressed with them, I’ve always been intimidated. They have bells and whistles that would probably be useful if I managed to learn how to work them, or else they have all these formulas nested in formulas and I can’t figure out where to plug in my information. I wanted a word count spreadsheet based on a calendar, where I can see cumulative weekly and monthly totals. Nothing fancy, just dates and running sums.
So I downloaded a very spare calendar template — January through December across the top, 1-31 down the side — no mucking with the days of the week. Each month is totaled at the bottom, months are totaled across.
I added some pictures just to jazz it up a bit.
You’re welcome to download it – like I said, it’s very simple. All you have to do is plug the numbers in.
