How the app works: Writers begin typing in the app’s window. When the typing slows to a stop, there are consequences. The writer can set how severe those consequences will be. In “gentle” mode, a notice pops up with a kind reminder that it’s time to start writing. In “normal” mode, the app begins to emit an unpleasant sound, which only stops once the typing begins again. In “kamikaze” mode, the app is set to destroy: when the writing has stopped for too long, the words begin to erase themselves. There is also a “nyan cat” mode, turning an Internet meme into a destructive force.

I like to check iwl.me to see which famous writer my style most resembles in each written work. My best friend Andrew and I recently decided to embark on a co-authored science fiction/fantasy novel of glorious proportions. I would tell you what to expect, but we are legitimately sitting on a potentially multi-million idea here, so I’d rather you wait until it’s on the shelves to learn what it’s about. I am a few pages into the prologue and decided to run it through this author resemblance analyzer website to see what style we’re looking at here. It labeled it as most similar to David Foster Wallace. Now, I can’t say I’ve ever read his work, but he hanged himself when he was 46. I can’t speak for anyone else, but for me this tells me that the writing is looking pretty promising: the morbidly depressed tend to be winners, no?
I just entered thispost into the analyzer. It gave me H. P. Lovecraft. Hotdog! This is some of the best encouragement a person can ask for when initiating such a monumental undertaking! Okay! To bed with me!
