putting the “prod” in productivity.

12 November 2008

this could be an answer to my writing hell process, at least for the first draft.

“Write or Die is a web application that encourages writing by punishing the tendency to avoid writing. Start typing in the box. As long as you keep typing, you’re fine, but once you stop typing, you have a grace period of a certain number of seconds and then there are consequences… because [and here is the nugget of truth here]:

A tangible consequence is more effective than an intangible reward.

interesting.  i think it would only work for me in kamikaze mode, and then i would just get irritated and write somewhere else.  because my procrastination genius knows no bounds.  besides, a very stern “dear!” that i get from the boy tends to work just as well.

side note: if you need more proof of my procrastination problem, know that i have a paper due in an hour, as i write this.
