But, I can’t help myself.
Yesterday, I wrote a post about “Mindbloom,” a productivity game my friend brought to my attention. Well, today, I want to share with you a suggestion I got from my bestfriend, Karama.
A talented, but reluctant writer, herself, Karama told me about the program/app “Write or Die” a while ago. Advertised for “putting the prod in productivity,” it’s a new kind of writing program/app that kills writers block and forces you to write by avoiding consequences for distraction and procrastination.
Here’s how it works: Before you type a word, decide how many words you want to write and how long you’re gonna give yourself to write them. Next, choose your preferred punishment — ranging from gentle to Kamikaze mode — and get to writing.
Now, as long as you keep typing, you’re fine, but the moment you become distracted, you will suffer your JUST PUNISHMENT!
Dramatic? Yep. But if this can keep your fingers flying across the keyboard, then what do you have to lose? Except your words, of course, which you can export as a drop box, or clipboard/text file when you’re done.
Here’s the link to try it — Write or Die. You can buy it as a $4.99 app for your IPad or $10 for your desktop. Then once you’ve done a test drive, come back here and testify about your experience….to me. ‘Cause yaw know I’m too scared to try it. LOL!
Fam, how productive was your “Write or Die” experience?
