I am a big fan of progress bars. For years I used the ones from Writertopia. Then last week, mysteriously, their images disappeared. No idea why. I emailed them to ask and received no reply. But I found a nice alternative at Critique Circle. You can tweak font and color and assorted things. So if you’re looking for one that is not dependent on JAVA, I can recommend this one.
Yes, I was using the same one, total bummer. Thanks for this alternative. The one I found is bulkier and I like this compact image.
I hate those grey counters. Svenja has pretty ones as well which are free. She provides colourful word count spreadsheets too. http://svenjaliv.com/resources/wordmeter/ Why does the world have to be grey and blue? 🙂
Ooh, thank you! I, too, am a fan of the progress bar.
