Write or die app: some thoughts from Jenny Diski

Over at the LRB blog Jenny Diski has written a short piece about apps that are supposed to ‘help’ you to write. She focuses her reflections on the ‘write or die’ app, which apparently starts deleting your words if you haven’t written anything for 45 seconds. Sounds risky. Diski uses this to talk about the downtime and distractions needed in the writing process.
