Work in Progress - More Features & Functionality Added Every Night

It's been a while, I've learned some things.

Introducing Write or Die 3

I'm back and so is Write or Die. All new and improved in every possible way. More modes, more customization, more peril, more rewards, more colors, shinier UI, slicker backgrounds.


The old version is (and always will be) available at v2.writeordie.com, Write or Die 2 is still available but for now does not work with OS X High Sierra, I will be working on an update for it. The laptop I developed it on died and I'm trying to resurrect the dev environment

All New Write or Die Online

  • Better UI
  • Fancier file saving
  • Shiny reward mode
  • Leaderboards for Write or Die online!
  • More languages (not quite yet, but I have built in support for other languages, see Translation page if you'd like to help out)
  • Files saved to browser storage for better backup
  • Just, a whole lot of stuff, look around

ALL NEW Desktop App :: Write or Die 3!

I'm sorry for my absence, I'm sorry for all the people I haven't replied to. Would you believe the inventor of this fear-based self-punishment tool has issues with anxiety? Crazy, right? But I've learned a lot since last I spoke and I want to invest in improving Write or Die and hopefully building a community around it. I've been working on this harder than I've worked on anything. I hope you like it. Once again, I'm sorry to those I haven't gotten back to, please feel free to get in touch @drwicked or drwicked­čÄ▒writeordie.com
