Using this tool, even just a few times, has really sharpened my perception - last time I sat down to read a book, I could watch myself mentally editing it. FranklinWrite is like 'Teach yourself writing: the video game'.

FranklinWrite has helped me greatly with its deliberate approach to writing through automated drills and immediate feedbacks that you can previously only get from a live tutor. I couldn’t recommend it more!

Just wanted to say I've done this 2 times this morning and saw significant improvement - both in time, and my ability to remember/write the passage. It improved in the way that I learned how to write it so I remember what the actually passage was.

"When people today hear about what Franklin did, they generally marvel not at the brilliance of his practice design but at his ability to carry it through. It seems like so much work. The truth is that in theory anyone could have followed his routine; anyone still can, and it would be highly effective. But nobody does it, not even students who are studying writing."
