Adding a progress bar to your WordPress website helps keep visitors informed of your work in progress as an author. Today, I’ll show you how to add the Author WIP Progress Bar for the sidebar and in a post or page.
My published books are available on Amazon:

The Author WIP Progress Bar is a free and easy-to-use plugin that takes less than five minutes to set up. It’s also a fun way to let your visitors and fans know just how far along you are writing your book.
You can also use the progress bar for other purposes, such as showing writing goals you have for yourself. For example, I show my current word count with a goal of writing one million words this year.
Another thing the Author WIP Progress Bar provides is a way to share links for just about any page you wish. A couple of ideas include your author page on Amazon, a landing page for your current book, or perhaps you have a YouTube video talking about your new work-in-progess.
Since this is a free progress bar plugin, all you spend is a few moments of your time setting it up.
If you need a placeholder image for your WIP’s cover, I suggest using Canva. It’s an awesome tool that has a lot of free features to create just about anything you want online.
Here is how I created an eBook cover for Wattpad with Canva:
