Today’s Weekly Roundup is all about utility, with a few handy tools that should be of use to you whether or not you’re undertaking NaNoWriMo this year.
It’s time to get your hands on:
- David Seah’s superbly designed, printable NaNoWriMo word count calendar. Track your progress in style, and with total ease!
- An online Pomodoro Timer – the perfect tool to help keep you focused during your writing sessions without burning yourself out.
- The superb, productivity-enhancing Chrome extension StayFocusd! With this tool, you can block certain sites from staying open in your browser – putting to bed those “just one minute” jaunts to Facebook and elsewhere that swiftly eat up the the time you should be writing. Yep, we’re all guilty of it… but now you can choose to “Go Nuclear” and lock down all those distractions! As you’d expect, this extension does require Google Chrome browser to work.
Not long to go now before the hard work begins. We wish you the very best during the coming month, and hope these tools help you smash those goals!
