Writers: Do You Use a Submission Tracking Program?

Any writers out there want to share with the rest of the class?  What do you use to track submissions?  I’ve been using Writer’s Market for some time now, and every so often, they decide to re-vamp.  When they do this, the writers are left scratching their heads, trying to figure out:  how do I add a new manuscript?  Add a new market?  How do I export the information so I can view it all at once? I’m starting to think a simple spreadsheet of your own creation might work just as well.

The other thing you can’t do with a lot of submission trackers out there now is store the actual manuscript along with the market and query information.  There’s got to be a program with which you can keep all of the related information in one place.

Anyone have a good submission tracker they’d like to recommend?

    Here’s a good submission tracking app (web-based and free): The Writer’s Database

      Thanks for the tip, Charles – I checked it out and it looks pretty straightforward. Does your app have any way for the writer to include an actual copy of the manuscript on the tracker? Most don’t, but I’d love to be able to have all my information in one place.

    That’s a feature I’ve considered adding — and will add, one of these days — but no, it isn’t done yet.
