Writer’s Resource: Word Count Applications

With NaNo fast approaching, here are a few options to help encourage achieving the daily word count goal.

Write or Die – this offers the carrot and stick options for writing, using pictures, sounds and colors based on how well the writing goes. Application charges fee for download.

750Words – based on the idea of writing three pages a day, the site offers rewards in the form of points and monthly contests. Site charges a fee after a free trial membership.

Written? Kitten! – operates on a reward system. Site shows a picture after so many words. Default is of kittens, but can be changed. Use is free.

ilys – does not allow the writer to edit until the world goal is reached.  The writing box doesn’t even show the entire document, just the last letter type. Once the word count is reached then you can access the full piece and edit. Use is free.

Writeometer – an android app that supplies graphs for tracking word counts, rewards for achieving goals, and sends notifications to remind you to write. Download is free.

There is also the previously mentioned HabitRPG.
