Heh. I said 'tool'.

Anyhoo -- a short time ago I mentioned my Superspeshul Outlining Tool in another thread; the MS Excel spreadsheet I use for those works I outline.

A few AWers asked if they could have a look at it, so I thought, why not open it up to the great unwashed?

It's a three-page spreadsheet, with formulae for chapter averages, day's total, total wordcount, how many days' work left, all that sort of thing, pre-entered into the document.

Trust me; it'll make more sense if/when you see it.

So if anyone's as hot for organisation as I am, drop me a PM or email, or post in this thread, and I'll email you a copy of my scarletpeaches SuperSpeshul Spreadsheet o' Destiny when I get home later this evening.

SP, spreading her OCD one spreadsheet at a time

I'd like to see it, too, please. I'm on a major organization kick. Just finished devising a shiny new filing system for myself. I repped you my email info. Thanks for sharing this.

I am realizing more and more that I need to outline my stuff more ... so yeah, I'd like a copy as well :).

Sounds fun. I love excel spreadsheets. Comes from working with them a lot in my wild and crazy youth (my bosses never figured out how I did all those calculations after experiments so quickly, they used to do all the calculations on paper and transfer them to excel to do the graph, I used to just bung in raw data and press print :) )

I'll PM you my e-mail address...

Erp!

I woke up to 4 PMs, several rep points, and this thread. Didn't think it'd take off in the way it has. Just as well I saved the email with all the instructions on it, to save retyping.

Yes, it comes with instructions. That's how anal I am.

I'll get round to everyone eventually. Promise!

You were offering free stuff. To writers. Of course there was a stampede. There are only two ways you could have got more PMs/posts/e-mails:

- Charging for the spreadsheet (in which case you'd get millions of posts accusing you of being a scammer)
- Offering to 'read any manuscript for free and give advice'

:)

Instructions are cool. You should have written them in scottish, though :)

Just as well I kept a copy of the original email to save having to retype it again and again.

Now everyone on AW will be as anally OCD as I am. BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA! :ROFL:

Crikey, just emailed another three AWers. I think in total that's around twenty so far. Who doesn't love free stuff, eh?

Uh, yeah.

Given that Scarlett's removed her avvie, her sig and deleted her profile I think it's fair to assume she's flounced.

(Or perhaps she's just in deep deep lurk mode.)
