The Most Dangerous Writing App Actually Works

Apr 02, 2021

Earlier today I went down a rabbit hole of reading Alexey Guzey's blog and came across his recommendation to try 'The Most Dangerous Writing App'.

It encourages you to write for 5 minutes straight because it wipes your progress if you stop writing for more than X seconds. Give it a try. Heck, you only lose a few mins if you don't like it.


I was skeptical, but I gave it a try. Unsurprisingly, I broke my 4 day streak of not writing and ended up writing... two production-ready blog posts. Not bad!

It's hard to know if I was it was just down to novelty or inspriation from Alexey's blog or because I already had an idea of what to write... but it worked.

I'm still skeptical that it'll help next time I get into a writing rut, but hey, let's see what happens.
