Write or die

Alison in Wonderland, Observant, Maastricht

Write or Die is a truly genius app. Its aim is to fight writer’s block by simply not allowing you to indulge in it. There are three settings. If you stop typing, the Gentle setting will politely prompt you to start again, the Normal setting will trigger an unpleasant sound until you keep going and, finally, the Kamikaze setting will actually start deleting everything you’ve written so far. Fortunately, I haven’t had to resort to such drastic measures, because I’m self-deluded enough to be able to set false deadlines and actually convince myself that disaster awaits if I miss them. Speaking of which, I must run – because if I don’t finish this thesis chapter by morning a fridge is bound to fall from the sky, and that will be the end of the cat.
