If you haven’t taken the time to track and analyze your productivity, I recommend you consider it. There’s a whole new wave of technologies known as “auto-analytics” designed to help you do this.

To start, choose a program such as Rescue Time that tracks your time at the computer. Plan to use it for a couple of weeks, sticking to your usual writing routine, trying not to change much. Of course, knowing you’re being tracked will automatically change your behavior to some extent, but as you get used to it, you’ll probably find yourself being less and less aware of it, and behaving more normally.

After the first couple of weeks, you should have some useful information about your work habits and productivity.
