New NaNoWriMo 2012 spreadsheet designs!

I just finished two brand-new designs for my NaNoWriMo tracking spreadsheets. One of them is inspired by Snow White and the Huntsman, and features my Huntsman painting:

Digital work, 2012.

The other one’s a steampunk-inspired one. It’s the one I’ll be using for my own tracking this year because it fits my story pretty well. They both have all the same features as the rest of the NaNo spreadsheets I’ve made. You can see the full previews by clicking on each image, and download the files via the links below.


Again, they’re licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 License, so you can change and share all you like as long as you give credit. I don’t know if I’ll make more, but if I do, I’ll upload them here as usual! I’m not sure I’ll have time, though. Four days to go and I still don’t really have my plot(s) worked out. I haven’t even really decided on a story yet. I’m taking the “ah sure it’ll be grand” approach this year, so far. Which is never a good idea, but that never seems to stop me.

Ah well. Anyone else decided what you’re going to write yet?

  1. I’m going to be a NaNo rebel. Still so many stories I want to write/finish, and all of them together should get me over the finishing line ;) Working on at least two books for which I’ll need your creative help again (sent you an email) ;)


    • Ahh yes, that’s a good idea! :) I really want to write two stories myself, but I’m gonna be ambitious and try to get them both to 50k. NO idea how I’ll manage it, but hey, you never know.
      I got your email, going to reply in a minute! ;)

  2. Gorgeous work. Thanks for sharing. People really should check it out. There is so much more inside the document than just a word count tracker.

  3. Brilliant. Very helpful. I’m here via NaNoWriMo. If you dont mind, I’d very much like to add a button on my writing blog directing people here, and mention it on Twitter.
    I dont know much about how to alter spreadsheets. If I wanted to use this regularly, for different months of the year, how would I alter it so that e.g the 1st of the month for December, the day= Saturday??


    • Glad you found me, and that these are helpful! I wouldn’t mind at all, actually, I’d really appreciate that! That’s awesome. Thank you!

      In order to change the date, all you really have to do is change it in the first box of the “date” column, which says “11/1″ right now. Change it to the date you want to start, and the other boxes will update. But December has 31 days so you’ll miss a day.

      So, an alternative is to use the year-round spreadsheet I have (the 2012 version is on the site, but there’ll be one for 2013 soon). That lets you set a yearly goal, but also a custom goal for each month. Let me know if you run into problems with either of those and I’ll do my best to help; or just send me an email and I’ll update the file you want for you and send it your way. :)

  4. Hi, I’m planning on doing a nanowriye, which translates to nation novel writing year, this coming year of 2013, so I was hoping you might update your full year counter to accomadate 2013? if you could that would be wondrous!

    • Oooh, good luck with that! :D I’ll be updating the yearly counter soon, yep! I’ll post it up here when it’s ready to go. :)

  5. Hey,

    This is fantastic! Just wanted to let you know that I plan on reblogging this at my site.

    I was looking for tips to creating my own work tracker and progress charter for Google Driver spreadsheets but found your amazingly inclusive work instead.
