I don’t know how but I landed on this writing app called ‘The Most Dangerous Writing App‘. I think someone in my writer’s group on Facebook had suggested a writer’s website, and while browsing through that website I came across an article about this app.
Apparently, the app erases everything you’ve written if you pause even for 5 seconds. For me, this was scary and frightening; not to mention annoying. How dare they erase whatever I write, I thought. I decided to try it out.
Below is the screenshot of the results after a frenzied 5 minutes.
At the end of the 5 minutes, my relief and elation were unparalleled. 😀
My skepticism has now turned to belief. It works! To be honest, I did have one eye on the timer and it was the fear that everything would wipe out if I stopped that kept me going.
So much so, that even when 5 minutes were up, I was in full flow and just didn’t want to stop. I think I could have probably managed to churn out a few more words if not lines. Then the urge to write a proper, streamlined post came over me. The editing instincts I had kept in check until then kicked in and I ended up saving it as a draft for later. That’s when I realised that I just had to share this with you all.
I think it would be perfect in curing writer’s block. What do you say?
Do try it out. And tell me how it worked for you. 🙂
