Write or Die can be nice and comforting now! Stimulus mode allows you to set up a writing environment that is conducive to concentration and focus. It provides a neutral, positive stimulus to keep you writing, when you stop writing, the nice environment goes away. This is especially helpful if you use headphones. You have a variety of options for sounds and backgrounds, from the steady purr of a cat to some nice neutral white noise. The background image can be changed as well so you can write while looking at a beach or a forest in the background. Custom Playlist allows you to create a playlist of your own music so that you have extra motivation to keep writing and keep the music playing.
Hi Michael..I think that the beginning of a book is one of the most
difficult things to do. I would suggest to take some time first and
think about your story and your into your book, love your
characters, embrace them Then I would suggest to simply start without
trying to make an impressive start. If you are not satisfied with the
start of your book you will come back later and make it better. That is
what I intent to do, because I am not satisfied with the first page of
the book I am writing. I wish you the best..
