It's too slow. Also not practical given that many writers work in public spaces. Nifty? Sure. Game changer? Meh

I guess this would mostly be for writers that write in their home, privately. I like to be alone when I write. I focus better.

But if you arenít sitting at Starbucks with your MacBook, how will everyone else know that youíre working on your screenplay?

People talk on their phone in public using their earpiece. It looks like they're talking to themselves. It's a modern world, people will understand. If I can't focus because of the crowd, I wait until I get home.

That wasn’t a jab at you, dude. It was a crack at every hipster in every coffee house. People who set up in a coffee shop with their MacBook do it so that they can be seen doing it. In other words: you write in a quiet space like a normal person.

I type way faster than I create. Typing is not a bottleneck for me.

Remind me a little of that david foster wallace movie I saw recently.

He said the most vulgar thing a writer can do is to go around telling everyone theyre a writer
