Journaling: Poetry Tracking
If you follow my journaling, and hopefully even bought a poetry journal of your own, then you probably have seen a poetry statistic tracker.
Recording your writing and activities can be a source of pride when you’re able to see everything you’ve done all together. While it’s not required, it can give you an idea where you’re excelling and where you’re slacking.
Okay… but, what do you track other than the days you write?
That’s what this post is for! Check it out!
Here are different things that I suggest you can track on the statistics tracker, or even a separate one if you wish.
- Different forms you’ve written
- Times you’ve written a specific form
- Different topics you have written (some of us write about the same thing over and over again)
- Times you’ve written about a specific topic
- Poetry forms you’ve studied (this may not mean you’ve written in this form)
- Poets you’ve studied
- Poems you’ve read (especially by a particular poet)
- Poetry books you own/you’ve read
- Favorite poems
- Times you’ve been featured
- Times you’ve been published
- Poems you’ve published (you can publish multiple poems in one instance)
- Poems you’ve finished
- Poems you haven’t finished
- Poems you’ve written
- Poems you’ve edited
- Poems you’ve shared (especially to a specific place)
- Poems you’ve scrapped
- Challenges you’ve participated in
- Times you’ve used a word
- Collaborations you’ve done
- Poems with supplements (maybe you have drawings or reflections with your poems)
- Contests you’ve entered
- Contests you’ve won
As you can see, there are lots of things you can track. And, I’m sure there’s more than what’s listed here. So, get tracking!
What do you track related to your poetry?
Let us know in the comments below, and on social media, of course! If you’re interested in a poetry journal for your tracking pleasures, you can see how I created one here or even buy a pre-done one here.
