Snapshot: Webtrate


When playwright Will Little found his web browsing habits were affecting his work, he created Webtrate, an Internet-blocking program. TBO found out how he’s been promoting the motivational tool for writers.

What is Webtrate, and how does it work?

Webtrate is Internet-blocking software aimed at anybody, particularly writers, who feel they’re being distracted from their work by replying to emails, browsing the web, or social media. You might be surprised at how much time you can spend on these.

It could be a habit, where if you’re working and you see an email pop up, you’ll answer it straight away, leading down an alleyway of dealing with emails and then maybe losing your train of thought.
