Let Ideas Flow with The Most Dangerous Writing App

The Most Dangerous Writing App Logo.When you’re trying to get your ideas down on the screen, it’s all too easy to sit there paralyzed by your inability to move forward. Self-editing, doubt, and the fear of writer’s block can cause you to seize up.

One trick professional writers use to unlock their idea is unrestrained freewriting. The important thing is not the quality of the ideas spilling forth, but that the ideas get down on the virtual page as fast as possible.

Of course, it’s easy to write freely for a while and then choke up again. And that’s where¬†The Most Dangerous Writing App¬†comes in. The idea is simple: Once you start typing, you have to keep typing or you’ll lose everything you’ve written. Stop for too long and the screen gradually pulses red, warning you you’re about to lose it all!

From the website:

“The Most Dangerous Writing App is designed to shut down your inner editor and get you into a state of flow. If you stop typing for more than five seconds, all progress will be lost. After typing without interruption for the length of your session, you’ll be able to save your work.”

Sessions begin at 5 minutes, but if you really want to challenge yourself, stretch it out to 10 minutes or more.

You’d be surprised how effective freewriting is for making associative leaps, interesting connections, and digging through complicated feelings. Give it a try:
