Statistics by novel

Novlr users currently have statistics on their writing – how much they write, how often, average words per day and many more. This is currently across all their novels.

You have requested to be able to break this down by novel. So we are building it.


This feature is now live!

    It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy.
    I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things
    or tips. Perhaps you could write next articles referring
    to this article. I desire to read even more things about it!

    Suggestions sent in via email from Ryan…
    – Project stats. It’d be nice to be able to see stats on a particular novel.
    – Stats calendar. A calendar view of the stats that shows word count/time per day.
    – Consecutive days, tracking how many consecutive days I’ve written.

    Great suggestion from Jenn via email:
    “The ability to track writing sprints. In addition to tracking word count by day/month/year, I’d like to be able to set a timer and track how many words I write in that timeframe. And I’d like to be able to graph those sprints so I can see if my hourly word count is improving and when I’m most productive. I currently use an iPhone app called 5,000 Words Per Hour (5KWPH) to track this info, but having that feature available directly within my writing environment would be fantastic.”

    Some for Stats by Novel v2:

    It would be useful to be able to drill into a novel and see a breakdown of words by chapter, along with words by Act (and less usefully for me, scene) if we get a more hierarchical structure.

    A chart that could be generated by whole novel or chapter of the most used words could also be useful.

    If we can get tagging of highlighted text (which the more I think about it would be incredibly useful) then a chart of the tags by chapter would give valuable insight of the arc in a novel.

    It would be useful to display the current local time or even better set it to another time zone (which could be especially beneficial if people are planning on a collaboration feature). It would also make sure the stats feature is accurate to the given time zone.

    It would be a great help if we could put the date we started writing the novel so we could know how long it took to write.

    Thanks so much!
