Hi, I am tracking my writing productivity. I am using an excel spreadsheet to track pages per chapter and pages for a whole book. I am using an app called Klok as a timer (because I have had this in my workflow in the past). I am interested in whether an hours per day target or a daily page target generates higher actual page counts. Note that I cannot count words in my situation, but my pages are fixed in size.
I spent last week trying out the tracking and working out some of the kinks. I am trying a self-experiment for the next two weeks: this week target is 5 hours a day and in two weeks after some travel, I will use a page target of three pages per day.
One thing that is a little hard is whether some time that I put in counts as ‘writing’. If I pace across the room while thinking, or if I spend time editing a draft of a graphic from my designer, are those activities 'writing" time or not. This is less of an issue with daily page targets, although I guess I would count all that time as toward the goal if the graphic went into the document.
