    Pros: 

    It actually works, can be used with any word processor, thoughtful selection of music

    Cons: 

    None that I can think of

    I've been a user of the Typeboost desktop app for quite some time and it has helped me tremendously beat procrastination. I can no longer imagine writing anything without the subconsciously motivational music playing in the background. I used to struggle with taking long breaks between each sentence I wrote, leading to the simplest of essays taking much longer than needed. Typeboost helped eliminate that.

    Pros: 

    Extremely simple, even more effective

    Cons: 

    can't think of any

    I've been using Typeboost to write a lot and its made the experience much more enjoyable, especially with the new desktop app giving me the power to write in any application. Support is great and I'm excited to keep using the product.

Typeboost is a writing tool that plays music when you type to encourage you to keep typing until your first draft is done. For many of us, perfectionism or fear of failure makes starting a written project like an essay or a blogpost stressful. For others, staying focused while writing is difficult. Typeboost aims to solve both of these problems by using music as a fun incentive to keep typing and get your ideas onto the page. In high school, I struggled with essay writing. I built Typeboost to help me overcome my writing anxiety and type up a quick first draft. Today, Typeboost helps writers of all kinds with their first drafts. Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback!

I feel that music stopping and starting might be more distracting. Disclaimer: I haven't tried this yet but curious to hear from those that have.

Double-check your one-liner, it should say the opposite 🐶

This is pretty clever Jules, like Ryan said it might get a little distracting but its obviously not for everyone. Definitely worth a try :)
