Michael Stuart Kelly Posted November 4, 2009 Share Posted November 4, 2009 Folks, here is one of the coolest ideas I have encountered on the Internet for writing productivity. It's a free online program called:Write or DieIt's based on the principle given on the "About Write or Die" page: "A tangible consequence is more effective than an intangible reward."The idea is that you program a writing goal, X words during Y minutes.A counter doing a countdown will start. If you do not attain your goal, the program will start eating your words one by one until you start writing again.That's right. Eating them. As in delete with no undo.Dayaamm!What's worse. I know I'm going to use this thing.There are no editing capabilities because the intent is to get the words down, then edit later. So it's OK to misspell, etc. You even have to copy/paste your text to another text editor to save your words. There is no "Save" button.There's also a desktop version for sale ($10 at the time this post is written).Whodda thunk it? Write and keep writing or watch your words being eaten by the Write-Or-Die Monster.That ought to keep you focused.What a cool idea!LOL...Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
