Write or Die 3 is the latest in a line of quirky tools for short-circuiting writer's block. Too many writing apps are too unopinionated, they will wait forever for you to start writing. Write or Die exhorts you to write and when you stop writing it will provide consequences. [more inside]

I made this for myself when flirting with the prospect of writing last autumn, but I felt compelled to clean it up and share it with the world for this year's contest. Starting November 1, it's going to start counting up from zero to 50,000, which will be reached at midnight on the 1st of December. It was designed as a tool to inspire, but I think the actual effect might be more troubling. I guess that depends whether you're on pace or behind.
RPG Write is a tool to help you beat writer's block, by giving you RPG-style incentives when you write. We've all been there, stuck playing an RPG for a few more minutes, "just until I level." Many of us have been grinding that last bit of XP when we should have been writing! Rather than fight it, we've decided to cave to the compelling nature of RPGs!
Adventure Cow is a site that lets you play stories where you choose which page to go to next (kind of like those CYOAs you used to read when you were younger). If you're thinking of writing something for NaNoWriMo, why not go interactive? [more inside]
I'm happy to say my nanowrimo novel, "Fault -or- The Man Who Made Earthquakes", is done and available for discerning readers everywhere to devour. It's a tale of suburban angst and isolation, and one man's decent into his own complex hell. Available through CreateSpace and on Amazon. There's also a Kindle version. For those unfamiliar with nanowrimo, I wrote this during the month of November, then did the editing and designed the cover.
