This web app is intended to keep one's focus on the writing, with negative consequences if one stops. You tell it how many words you want to get written, and you set the consequence level of the grace period. ("Strict" by default, the middle choice, with "Forgiving" and "Evil" on either side.) How evil is "Evil"? If you stop writing, after a certain amount of time, your work will begin unwriting itself!
There is no save function; you'll need to select all, copy, and paste into your own text editor to save any work. NaNoWriMo participants may want to bookmark this one for November.

"Freedom is an application that disables networking on an Apple computer for up to eight hours at a time. Freedom will free you from the distractions of the internet, allowing you time to code, write, or create. At the end of your selected offline period, Freedom re-enables your network, restoring everything as normal.
"Freedom enforces freedom; a reboot is the only circumvention of the Freedom time limit you specify. The hassle of rebooting means you're less likely to cheat, and you'll be more productive."
