Software That Helps You Write Faster?


There’s a software called “Write or Die” that forces its user to type at a certain rate, or words start to delete. Sounds horrifying, right? Author David Nicholls wrote his second novel Us this way, and described it as “writing with a gun to my head.”

Despite David Nicholls’s experience, writer David Mitchell still wanted to try the software. Read about his take before deciding if this program is for you. As for me, I think I’ll stick with my current routine of procrastinating for an hour and then letting panic be my motivator. I will not be downloading the software. Sounds way too anxiety inducing for me!
