The female has created an updated 2021 Writing Productivity Spreadsheet. This is the thing she uses to help manage her projects and keeps her on track. If you’re an author, please enjoy and make use of this. You can access it here.
If you like it, you can toss pennies in the female’s jar by buying some of her books. There are links on the project master list page within the spreadsheet.
We understand people will take this, make adjustments, etc. We’re just sharing what she made. There are probably bugs in the sheet, etc. But if you change something, the female will not be helping you to fix it. This thing is complicated, and it took her numerous hours to create.
As such, we also will not be doing the following, in no particular order:
- changing the colors for you
- making a revision column
- adjusting someone else’s spreadsheet
- changing the order of columns
- moving fields around because you want them positioned elsewhere
- anything else that changes appearance and functionality to match your vision for the sheet
Note: yes, most of these things have been requested of the female.
If you want a revision sheet, please consider buying the Raintree spreadsheet. Jamie does one every year, and she offers her sheet for a very affordable price. It handles revisions and drafting.
Please enjoy, and feel free to share with your author friends, just please give the female credit for having created the sheet.
You are very generous to share. It’s obvious that a lot of effort and work went into the spreadsheet.

Sharing is caring, and there’s zero reason to hoard this sheet all to myself!

Do you know if this can be adapted for other non writing projects?
I’m thinking my cross stitch stuff and current projects!
I promise I will sort my version out myself. More fun that way.
Might need a sweat jar though. I am slightly techno illiterate.
Would you please tell the female all the best and Good luck!

I literally have no idea if it could be adapted. My guess is probably not? But I have no idea how you could possibly track data for those sorts of projects. In theory, I guess you could just count the number of rows you do in a day and plug in that as a number, and then just use the project name field as the project you’re working on, but I can’t see that being of much use?
But I don’t cross stitch, so… no idea how it would be of use.
