Struggling with Nanowrimo?

For all you Nanowrimos out there attempting to write 50k words this month, Fairyhedgehog found a nifty little tool: Write or Die. Put in your goal amount of writing for the session, and if you stop writing before you reach it, these are some of the consequences:

  • 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
Sounds like some interesting "gentle reminders" that might just get you to writing some more. Good luck with the last half of the month!

Wow! What an excellent tool. One could use this for numerous lost causes like my gardening, my house cleaning, my project at work.

E.g.Gentle Mode: A certain amount of time after you stop working on the project, a box will pop up, gently reminding you to continue working.
Normal Mode: If you persistently avoid writing, your computer will played the Darth Vader theme ~ loudly.
Kamikaze Mode: Keep Writing or Your computer will automatically sending a flame email to your boss outlining all the ways he or she is incompentent and a total moron.

Thanks for sharing Jessi.
