Track your writing progress with these apps

“There is nothing to writing,” Ernest Hemingway once said. “All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Writing is indeed no easy task. And it’s a notoriously time-consuming one. Which is why it’s important to be able to track your progress when you’re engaged in this activity, whether you’re doing it the old-fashioned way at a typewriter or the modern way with a word processor, whether you’re an author or a student. And to assist you on that front are these excellent apps, which include word count, time logging, and other useful features.
