Need to rid yourself of writer’s block? I recently heard about an open-source web app, appropriately called The Most Dangerous Writing App. Select the length of time you wish to work (e.g., 3 min) and start typing. Stop for more than 5 secs and your work is lost. Type for the selected duration and you have an option to save the file (as a .txt document). The app tracks character and word counts, as well as average words per minute.
