    Debatably off-topic, but I thought I should mention this.

    If you have no inspiration and no desire to write (but you also want to)

    try this website


    Basically you have 5 minutes to write, and if you haven't written a word for five seconds, all your progress is deleted.

    I swear I've never written this fast in my life.

    I would recommend at least giving it a try.

    Thank you but no thank you. I've lost my progress only a few times in the past from regular errors and it has infuriated me to no end. I've also seen what happens when I turn off my brain and just crash out words across the page, and it is a very, very ugly thing. No interest in combining those two disasters into one. But kudos to you for finding the process meaningful.

    EDIT: Okay, gave it a shot. Looks like you can get your words back at the end? Maybe not so bad then. Still, I prefer taking a bit more time to feel out what I'm writing as I go rather than just rush-rush-rush.
