Write or Die

Write or Die: And with this, the consequences for distraction come full circle.

Write or Die is a new kind of writing productivity application that forces you to write by providing consequences for distraction and procrastination.

As long as you keep typing, you’re fine, but if you become distracted, punishment will ensue. Everything is configurable, name your word goal, time goal and preferred punishment, then start writing! Once you’re done, export your writing to Dropbox, Email, Clipboard or Text file.

You can set consequences to “Gentle,” “Normal,” and “Kamikaze.”  Some of the consequences are that it won’t save or it plays an unpleasant noise.  However, in Kamikaze mode, it starts deleting your words if you stop typing.

I don’t know if this is brilliant or sad.
