Inspired by this
article, I'd like to track and monitor my writing.

In an effort to write more consistently, and understand my writing patterns, I'd like to start recording some data. Similar to what Rubin does in the article above, I'd like to create a way to automatically do the following things:
- Gets a total word count for the day (from documents in a directory) and logs the word count to an Excel spreadsheet
- Emails me a daily and weekly summary of word counts, time spent, continuous days written, and other relevant trackable metrics
I don't have a ton of scripting experience but am willing to tinker/learn as needed!
