I am a procrastinator. So when I came across this app I was skeptical but willing to try anything. I was surprised by how many ideas I saved and finished because I was forced to keep writing instead of continuously stopping and getting side tracked. The timed writing works. Before you start, think of a general topic you want to focus on… diary, fleshing out a story idea, fleshing out ideas for a chapter in your novel, etc. Start out with 5 minutes. I recommend this app for anyone who ends up continuously skipping around from activity to activity, or skipping around from doing what you want like writing a story to getting sidetracked right in the middle of writing out your story by web surfing aimlessly instead. This serves me as a container of free thought… I give myself permission to misspell and to punctuate inaccurately for the pursuit of creative idea nurturing.
