I use a site called Product Hunt. It is helpful for finding the newest sites and tools for knowledge work. A recent discovery: Sprinter. The product is hooked into word processing hardware called Freewrite. You do not need to use the hardware to have access to the software.
The software puts you into a fifteen-minute freewrite. It does not limit you to that time period. Not really a countdown clock. It is easy to save as a text file or pdf as well as to the cloud via Google Drive or Dropbox.
This desktop/cloud word processor is stripped down to its minimal viable productive needs. I used it below to create a very raw, Peter Elbow-like freewrite. I was once very fond of this open style for journal writing. Perhaps I need to re-embrace it with this tool.
That’s it! Check my raw noodlings out below (or not) by clicking in the embed box and using the arrow keys to scroll down.
