Important message, added February 2006 : This software is no longer being updated or supported by me. I created the first version back in 2002 and it has grown quite a lot since then. Thousands of people have downloaded WriteThis and many have expressed their happiness with the ultility. However, I am no longer in a position, where I can update the software. Perhaps some day, I will launch a new version of it, since I have many more ideas on how to improve it, but there are no active plans. A big thank you to all who have shown their support and especially those who donated to keep the software online.
This is the home of WriteThis, a small free utility for writers. The tool generates writing exercises, based on a set of keywords and criteria. It can generate characters, locations, items and special rules, and you – the writer – have a specified number of minutes to combine these things into a story.
The tool was created because I, Rasmus Rasmussen, needed something like it for myself. As a writer, I often feel that small exercises can help me get started or inspire me, because I am forced to think creatively within a limited structure. You probably can't write a novel using WriteThis, but use it to keep writer's block at bay or maybe even get a few new ideas.
WriteThis can generate more than 25 million different exercises and with each new version, even more are added. The current version is WriteThis 2.0 BETA, featuring some powerful new features — such as addition of custom exercises!
It is no longer possible to sign up for newsletters. If you would like to drop me a comment about WriteThis, feel free to send an e-mail to writethis [at] theprint [dot] dk.
