You Win!



Many people have found their creativity explode during NaNoWriMo with ilys because we share the same foundational principle:  JUST KEEP WRITING! The tremendous boost to your output comes from keeping your inner-editor far away from your creative process while you write, write, write. The unleashed creative flow is so powerful that winning NaNoWriMo becomes a reality for many who attempt and follow through with it.

Thomas Harper says: I had two four thousand words sessions today. Since I worked last night, today is my first day and that makes this my most successful start to nanowrimo in my eleven years taking part in the event.

Callie Sandberg says: Just want to say thank you to ilys for allowing me to start writing 5,000 words without looking back at my mistakes. This NaNo year will be the year that I win thanks to this website.

Arya Turner says: ilys helps me to concentrate on writing. I have problems with staying focused on writing and not going back and fixing mistakes and typos and reading what nonsense I am creating :) When I can't see what I write I can simply write further without caring too much. It turned out to be really useful during NaNoCamp :)

Ellie McRitchie says: ilys is fantastic! It's helped me out so much with NaNoWriMo this year, as I'm terrible for reading and rereading everything I've written over and over, editing as I go along. ilys removes that option, which has really helped me bump up my word count and keep on top of everything. :)

Ella says: When I first heard about ilys, I thought to myself, "This can't be helpful for me. It sounds so frustrating!" However, I tried it, and I was astounded by how much I was able to get done. Now, I can write about a thousand words in half an hour, which is perfect for NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo. I recommended it to my sister, and now we both use it daily. Good job, guys!

Solomon says: ilys is absolutely awesome. I am currently participating in the Nanowrimo camp month-long novel write and it is really helping me to achieve my word-count goals. Before I was trying to write in 300 word sessions multiple times throughout the day but was finding it very difficult to accomplish these quickly and effectively. When I started using ilys I have upped my word-count daily goal from 500 words per day to 1000. Having said this, thank you so much for this program.

Charlie says: I found this website today via NaNoWriMo and wow this is very, very useful. Not only is the "block your inner editor" very useful, but it's a great way of doing "I won't take a break until I've done 1000 words" kind of thing. It really does make things flow really well too, because I often go back and re-read sentences which can be a big distraction. I think the black background works really well to because it's minimally distracting. THANK YOU FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF A WEBSITE.

Babette says: I LOVE ilys it helped me SO much for NaNoWriMo last November and it's helping again this year! Thank you so much for this awesome website!



Forward only.
The golden path to magic.



To start a writing session, tell ilys how many words you want to write. Then begin writing and see that there is nothing else you can do but to just keep writing. You can't go back, delete or edit anything until you have completed your word count goal. When you have reached your goal, only then can you edit your text in every way you want.

Don't get us wrong, we the inner-editor and are fully aware of the very vital role it plays in the writing process. We also believe that its time to shine comes AFTER the creation phase, not during. The results of keeping these phases separate are tremendous improvements in the quantity and quality of your written works.


Track your writing.
Create a rock-solid habit.



Do you want to improve your word-counts and write more consistently? Like a good coach, ilys will track your progress over time and help you see where you're rocking and when you've dipped in your output. Many professionals repeat the mantra of consistency in writing, whether good or bad, as the master-key to ultimate writing success. We agree with this philosophy and want to support you with it.


Complete privacy.
They can't see it.



Do you worry about people reading what you're writing as they stand behind your back? Writing in public spaces with ilys is awesome because the only visible text on the screen is the very last letter you typed. If even that one letter is too much, you can turn on Ninja Mode and flow in stealth. Your words are invisible until you're ready to reveal them. You can always click on the icon and have a peek at your text when you want it.


Totally secure.
Your story matters.



We take your story very seriously. That's why all communications with ilys happen through the Secure Channel, also known as SSL. This is the same technology that keeps you safe when you share your payment information with Amazon or any other highly-trusted online site. While our communication-pipes are tightly secured, we don't stop there. All of your story data is professionally encrypted and looks like absolute gobbledy-gook (that's a technical term) to human eyes in our database. You can rest assured knowing we've got security handled.


Love writing again.
Have fun and feel great!



Writing can be so much fun when our creative juices are flowing. This beautiful and delicious state of being is sometimes called a peak experience -- something rare and hard to find. We've discovered that this state of flow can be had easily and effortlessly by training ourselves to let go of our inner-editor while our creative-genius is given the freedom to run wild with unbounded expression. Cultivating this flow within you is why ilys exists.


Unlock your genius.
Let your creativity soar.



When you've tapped and practiced the ability to let go of your inner-editor, you will release within you a gushing torrent of latent creative-potential. Without the nagging inner-critic interrupting your every move, your creative output will explode through the box that once constrained it.


Only $10.08 per month.
Worth it.



Yep, for less than the price of a combo snack at a movie theater, all of this will be yours. There's good reason why people love ilys -- it simply works -- very, very well. We know that to truly understand what this is all about, you need to actually use it and have the experience. So go ahead, create an account and take ilys for a very long test-drive.


Because ilys is unique, it might seem very weird at first. This weirdness is your first opportunity to practice letting-go with ilys. Get past any thoughts you have about it and just start typing, and just keep typing. Any thoughts you have that cause you to slow down, pause or stop, let them go and continue typing. Just keep going and see what happens. Try to get your fingers moving faster than your thoughts and see what happens. Notice yourself creating as you practice letting go. You might just enter the magic space and completely surprise yourself with the genius you unleash when your inner-editor takes a nap while you write. You will have 3,000 free trial words to play with.
