Write or Die!
Posted on Friday, 16 July, 2010 at 5:57 pm
Have you struggled to keep up with writing articles in your dedicated timeframe? Or maybe it just seems to take forever to write an article. Well I’ve just found a new cool website that ‘punishes’ you for not writing fast enough.
The website Write or Die by Dr Wicked, allows you to enter your total words, timeframe and it will show a countdown of how long you have left to write your article.
Now to the fun part, whenever you don’t write a word for 5-10 seconds (depends on what mode you set it on) it’ll do something to ‘prod’ your productivity. Eg… every second you stop writing the screen starts to go redder and redder. Once the screen is completely red, it will play a noise to annoy you… and they did pick the noises well. Now they did pick these noises well, I set it to extreme and the noise that played when I slowed down was Hanson – MMM Bop. Joy, exactly what you want to hear. It definately is inspiration to type faster.
Now you can check out the website for Write or Die at http://writeordie.drwicked.com.
I’ll vouch for it, it does speed up your productivity by giving you a set timeframe to help write on a faster and more time-effective way. Just say you normally write an article, and it took you half an hour. You set this to 10 minutes and write your heart out and try to beat the countdown. If you can beat it, you could write 3x more articles.
BTW I’m writing this article on it and i’m up to 267 words, with 2 mins to go. Job well done, thanks to Write or Die.
