Fun Friday Resources

We have two quick online writing resources today, one general and one specialized.

The general tool can be used as RITUAL to overcome your worst TASK AVOIDANCE. At Write, you select a time and you begin typing. Keep typing, because if you stop typing everything you’ve written vanishes. From the website:

The purpose of this is to get the user to write for a set duration without any inhibition or distraction allowed. To achieve this, the editor lets one write for a specified duration, within which, if the user goes inactive, all that has been written is deleted completely. This forces the user to continuously write throughout the session, resulting in a rough draft of (a lot of) content that can then be revised/polished.

In other words, either you produce an absolute ABORTIVE ATTEMPT, or you lose it.

The specialized tool is a scriptwriting tool specifically designed for collaboration, although clearly you can use it alone: Writer Duet is pretty full-featured, and if you’re a serious script writer there is a Pro version that allows you a lot more production capability.

There’s a short intro video which is enough to get you started. It’s easy to use, especially if you’re already familiar with script format. (A big thanks to Josh Marsh, who told me about this site.)

Happy writing!
