πŸ›‘οΈ Automate your NaNoWriMo word count updates with First Draft Pro

Updated over a week ago

Make your life easier by syncing your First Draft Pro project directly with your NaNoWriMo account. This way, every word you type is automatically counted towards your NaNoWriMo goal. Here's how to get it all linked up:

Steps to Sync with NaNoWriMo

  1. Navigate to Settings: You'll find the NaNoWriMo setup option at the bottom, right under your word count stats.

  2. Access NaNoWriMo Setup: Click on it, and you'll be prompted to log in to your NaNoWriMo account.

  3. Log In: Use your NaNoWriMo username and password to log in.

  4. Choose Your Project: Select the NaNoWriMo project you wish to sync. You'll see your current word count and can then confirm the link.

  5. Confirm the Link: Once linked, First Draft Pro will start tracking your word count for that specific NaNoWriMo project.

Before linking, ensure that your project is already set up on the NaNoWriMo website.

Managing Your Link

  • Switching Projects: You can unlink your project at any time and link a different one if you change your writing focus.

  • Visual Confirmation: Look for the NaNoWriMo icon next to your project in First Draft Pro to see which projects are synced.
