Professional and aspiring writers will often do anything imaginable to avoid sitting down at the keyboard writing. And, then, once they do sit down and start writing, many writers quickly give in to the distractions of email, Twitter, or aimlessly surfing the Web.
Write or Die – a new iPad and Web app is designed to get writers writing – and keep writing.
Once you start writing in the app, and you stop for a length of time, the app has a range of attention-getting prompts – annoying sounds, pop-ups, and even deletion. Yep, that’s right, if you stop writing while using the app, the app will be begin deleting your precious words – gone forever.
From the app description:
This is aimed at anyone who wants to get writing done. It requires only that you recognize your own tendency towards self-sabotage and be willing to do something about it. If you’re sick of saccharine writing advice that no one could honestly follow and you want a real method to getting work done.
Works great for real deadlines too!
