Do you want to be a writer? Would you like to be more organized about your writing, but not sure where to start? Then Excel for Writers is the book for you.

It'll walk you through how to use Excel to (1) track your time spent writing and your word count, (2) calculate your potential income with both a trade publishing contract and a short story sale, (3) visually track your short story submission results, (4) use Excel to analyze a multi-viewpoint novel, and (5) much more.

If you have a basic understanding of Excel, this guide will show you the ways you can use Excel to support your writing. Each worksheet includes detailed commentary and step-by-step instructions on how to create your own version. (And if you're self-published then check out Excel for Self-Publishers too.)
