Having a proven template ensures that you will not miss any of the important details you are anxious to include. There are immeasurable advantages to having this support when you are writing, many of them intangible which may not truly become obvious until after you have delivered your eulogy. Imagine the sense of pride and achievement that comes from knowing you did a great job.
Since Tom’s funeral I have taken almost 655 funerals and written, advised on, and delivered nearly as many eulogies! For me it is a great privilege to share my experience and expertise with others in these difficult times, and it is especially rewarding to receive feedback such as:
"First, you limit the number of your clients so that you can maintain the high quality of your services while many other MBA consultants accept clients almost beyond their capacity. Second, you are really great 'catalyst.' Each question you asked me made me think and thus deepened my stories. Thanks to you, I was able to come up with excellent ideas that I could never come up with alone."
At long last wordWar is ready. Originally and buggily included in Write or Die 6, now wordWar is it s own standalone platform with a robust backend server and great new features.

Memoir is the art of inventing the truth. One secret of the art is detail. Any kind of detail will work—a sound or a smell or a song title—as long as it played a shaping role in the portion of your life you have chosen to distil.
Write or Die can be nice and comforting now! Stimulus mode allows you to set up a writing environment that is conducive to concentration and focus. It provides a neutral, positive stimulus to keep you writing, when you stop writing, the nice environment goes away. This is especially helpful if you use headphones. You have a variety of options for sounds and backgrounds, from the steady purr of a cat to some nice neutral white noise. The background image can be changed as well so you can write while looking at a beach or a forest in the background. Custom Playlist allows you to create a playlist of your own music so that you have extra motivation to keep writing and keep the music playing.
