The Most Dangerous Writing App Lives Up To Its Name

Here we go.

You know how in the movie Speed they had to keep the bus going or else it would explode? Well, The Most Dangerous Writing App has a similar setup, but it's for writing instead of blowing up municipal transport, and it's unlikely to end with the gruesome decapitation of Dennis Hopper.

It's a simple setup. You click a time limit somewhere between 5 and 60 minutes, start typing, and if you go too long without hitting a key, the app not only stops, but all of your text is burned away. Yep, take too long sipping your coffee and you'll get just a brief redness that creeps down from the top of the screen, a fading of the text, and boom, your work is gone. And if you're keeping with the Speed comparison, Keanu is exploded, 90's Sandra Bullock (possibly the best Sandra Bullock?) is blown to bits.

I used The Most Dangerous Writing App to type this. It works. Kind of. I mean, it's pretty frustrating to lose ALL of your text completely, even if you get to tweet about it afterward. It's good motivation to keep going, but at the same time, it's good motivation to write nonsense in order to preserve your work. For example, opinions on which era of Sandra Bullock is the best. They're all the best. She's a treasure.

You can try out The Most Dangerous Writing App on your desktop or laptop computation machine. It's web-based, so no worries about downloads or any of that. Get crackin! Save the bus!
