    Just for curiosity’s sake (and as a summary thread so new participants don’t have to read each person’s thread to find out), what are you tracking for this challenge? Are you tracking all the words you write in a day to see where your time is spent? Or are you using a time tracker to see where you’re spending too much non-writing time that could be converted to more billable hours?

    I’ll kick it off:

    I’m tracking word counts. So far, so good. Well, at least in the sense that I’m finding a lot of wasted word count (in email mostly) that I might be able to put toward writing projects. :)

    Tracking word counts as well.

    As so far, pretty good!

    Sorry to miss this thread.

    I do a little of both, depending on the client actually. Mostly, I track hours worked, but often there’s a particular client paying by the word. Still, I guess you could say I track hours as I’m looking to get it done fast, accurately, and within a certain time limit (for the most bang for my buck).
