The “Write or Die” Widget

I finally got around to trying Write or Die (“Putting the ‘Prod’ in Productivity”), after being frustrated all month by my inability to write anything when I wasn’t at work.

Write or Die‘s Three Modes:
Gentle Mode: A certain amount of time after you stop writing, a box will pop up, gently reminding you to continue writing.
Normal Mode: If you persistently avoid writing, you will be played a most unpleasant sound. The sound will stop if and only if you continue to write.
Kamikaze Mode: Keep Writing or Your Work Will Unwrite Itself

My Own Personal Results:
1st: “Gentle Mode” – 250 words in 15 minutes — Success!
2nd: “Normal Mode” – 500 words in 30 minutes – Success!
3rd: “Kamikaze Mode” – 400 words in 20 minutes – Success! (stressful success, but success nonetheless)
