Books Is Your Novel Lagging?

Are you doing National Novel Writing Month? Are you having a hard time keeping up? Try Write or Die (“Putting the ‘Prod’ in Productivity”). Write or Die is a widget that lets you enter a specific time that you need to write for. If you stop writing continuously, the widget will make an obnoxious sound to alert you that you’ve stopped writing. On the Kamikaze mode, if you stop writing for a certain amount of time, the widget will start deleting words until you start typing again. It’s certainly a way to ensure that writers will stay productive.
If you’re doing Nanowrimo this month, you should have roughly 17,000 words by now, and you’re a third of the way done. If you’ve successfully made it this far, congratulations. If not, well, write or die.
