Ink On – Track word counts, writing time and days in the chair

Start it, revise it, finish it. Stay accountable to your writing goals with Ink On.

Choose your own goals – writing time, word count or simply “Did I write today?” – and track progress. Track by day, by project or both. Make a habit out of your passion.


Write with your favorite tool, be it Word, Scrivener or another platform. Track your progress in Ink On. Whether you prefer to set goals by project, overall or both, Ink On has you covered.

We created Ink On for writers like you who want to:

– Commit to getting in the chair and making the writing process part of your routine. Start by setting simple goals in Ink On, such as writing days for the month.

– Challenge yourself to reach big dreams. If you’ve participated in a writing challenge like NaNoWriMo or Camp NaNoWriMo, you know the power of challenging yourself to a goal. With Ink On, you can set targets and track progress year round.


Track Days in the Chair
– Set a goal for writing days each month. See the days you wrote displayed on your calendar and in a progress graph.
– Purchased the app mid-month? Edit your calendar to reflect what you’ve already accomplished.

Track Writing Time
– Manually add or edit writing time.
– Use the timer to track writing sessions for a project. Start the timer and get writing. Pause the timer to take a break if needed and restart.

Track Word Counts
