Write Or Die Putting the Prod in Productivity

Recommended Posts

Write or Die is a web app. whose purpose is if to punish you if you don't write what you decided to write in a period of time you chose to write e.g. you suddenly stop writing because of someone IM'ing you. :P


Write or Die is a web application that encourages writing by punishing the tendency to avoid writing. Start typing in the box. As long as you keep typing, you're fine, but once you stop typing, you have a grace period of a certain number of seconds and then there are consequences.


Many people find themselves unable to write consistently. I believe that this is because their reason to write is intangible. For instance, I want to write and finish a book because I want to be published and make a living as a writer. That goal is a long way away so I often find it difficult to sit down to the task of writing.



Gentle Mode: A certain amount of time after you stop writing, a box will pop up, gently reminding you to continue writing.

Normal Mode: If you persistently avoid writing, you will be played a most unpleasant sound. The sound will stop if and only if you continue to write.

Kamikaze Mode: Keep Writing or Your Work Will Unwrite Itself

It's a really great way to make yourself write when you must but you don't want to. Oh, and only one pause is allowed but it will automagically ask you if you want to copy the text to the clipboard if you are going to leave the page :P
