Write or Die


Quick post today to mention Write or Die, a truly evil application that provides negative reinforcement whenever you stop writing.  I’ve tried it; it works.

    Ha! This is terrific. 260 words in 15 minutes. Didn’t meet my goal, but then, that’s 26o more words than I expected to write this morning. Thanks, Sandy. But now I’ve got to run — I’m late. But smiling…

    Isn’t it wonderful? I actually completed a 50,000 word “novel” in 30 days for National Novel Writing Month by using Write or Die daily. I also find it pretty amusing, which helps put me in a good frame of mind for writing.

    that’s excellent – I needed that last year when I was writing my MA thesis! Might have to have that for my PhD!!!!!

    Glad you like it, Mardi. My experience has been that using Write or Die produces pretty rough writing–keeping the fingers typing rather than a thoughtful creative session–but it’s great for forcing you to get that first draft out!
