Novel word count progress bar

I wanted to add a word count progress bar like the one above to my blog a) to show people how THIS is progressing, and b) to spur me on.

The whole procedure took a while longer than I had anticipated.

To prevent anyone else having to spend too long trying to make this work, here is a 10-point step-by-step guide to getting it done:

  1. Go to this website and key in your details.
  2. Copy the code in the ‘Code’ box below the ‘Preview’.
  3. Go to your blog Dashboard. Hold your cursor over ‘Appearance’ and click on ‘Widgets’.
  4. Find the ‘Text’ button and click on it.
  5. Click on ‘Add Widget’.
  6. Paste your code into the blank box beneath ‘Title’.
  7. Give it a title in ‘Title’.
  8. Save it.
  9. Drag and drop it where you want it to appear on your blog.
  10. Get back to writing!
