A Word Meter For Your Desktop

Barbecue is a free/donation program that allows you to keep track of your writing progress without having to share it with the rest of the world. It’s great for those of us without blogs or if you just need a bit of extra motivation.

Best of all you can change the color scheme and make it pretty. See for yourself:

You're always finding neat stuff. :)
Thanks so much for sharing!
How did your writing classes go?

This is ace!!! Thanks so much, Lacey. I've got one on the blog but it's a fiddle to update it and I can't see it unless I view the thing. Will be nice to have one on the desktop for constant update on progress (or non-progress!)

So Cool!

Oooh, me likey. I put one on my blog once, and caused great hilarity when it didn't move for ages (someone mentioned something about 'a proud declaration of zero words written'). Keeping it private is how I like it.

Thanks, Lacey.

Tina - Thanks :-) The classes have only just finished and were great! Thanks for asking :)

Charlotte - I'm glad you like it. I think there's also a danger that if you stop writing to update your blog word meters then you've connected to the internet and we all know how great that is for growing your word count ;-)

Anne - Thanks!

Suzanne - LOL to the proud declaration of zero words written. The darn things tell all our secrets ;-)
