Two Apps That Help You Write Consistently

I have an awful time sticking to my writing goals. I say, I need to write a page every day,” but I can never seem to keep it up. However, today I am presenting two tools that can help you stick to those goals.
WriteTrack is a little-known web app whose purpose is to help break down your big goals into smaller ones. For example, if you wanted to write twenty thousand words this month, put it into WriteTrack. It will automatically allocate the words between all the days. But the best is yet to come. It can assign different weights” to different days. For instance, if all your Saturdays this month are going to be super busy, it can give you less words to write on Saturdays. 
Each day, you enter how  many words you wrote that day. If you missed your writing goal, it reallocates the words across the remaining days. If you wrote more than your goal, it takes that many words away from your remaining amount. 
WriteTrack’s original purpose was planning for NaNoWriMo, but it can really be used for any purpose.
If you’re serious about writing, I’d highly recommend 750words. In essence, they encourage you to write 750 words, or about typed 3 pages, every single day. You don’t have to write about anything specific, just what you want to. So if you want to work on your novel, a blog post, a journal entry, or anything else, just go ahead. It’s up to you.
Here’s how the creator of 750words uses it: I've use [750words] as a great way to think out loud without having to worry about half-formed ideas, random tangents, private stuff, and all the other things in our heads that we often filter out before ever voicing them or writing about them. It's a daily brain dump. Over time, I've found that it's also very helpful as a tool to get thoughts going that have become stuck, or to help get to the bottom of a rotten mood.” 
750words.com also uses fun things, such as points and streaks, to keep you motivated, as well as providing fascinating insight into such things as your mood when writing.


Hopefully, these couple of tools can help you gain the discipline to write regularly. If you find them helpful, be sure to write a comment below!
