oneword is described by its creators as an application “dedicated to helping writers learn to flow.” Users are presented with a single word and given 60 seconds to write whatever comes to mind.
Computer scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have developed a way to write using only the motions of your wrist.
It’s something for those of us who just can’t be bothered to type, let alone hold an actual pencil.
Every writer has a process.
1. I sit down with an idea, see that blank screen, and say, “Oh no, I don’t know what I’m doing. Is this even going to work? I suck.” You know, the usual.
2. I write. If I need to do research (which is usually the case), I do that first. But the important part is just writing.
3. Once I’m finished and I’ve edited everything to acceptable levels (whatever that means), I sit back and say, “Oh, okay. That wasn’t so bad. Turned out pretty good, in fact.”
