S.D. Skye's Hell or High Water 365-Day Blogathon Day 187 -- What's New Wednesday - ilys

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got from a writing book came from Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott: Write shitty first drafts.

They best way to finish a book...is to actually finish the book BEFORE you start with the editing. Just allow your mind to be creative. 

Today's tool was designed to allow you to do that. it's call ilys. 

It's the craziest writing tool I've ever seen and I'm not sure I could really do it but you might be able to so I'm sharing. 

How does it work? You can only see one letter at a time. You cannot edit until you reach your word count. 

Check out this video...



I'm going to try it for one chapter and let you know how it goes...
