Writing prompts, timer and inspiration, perfect for morning pages, freewriting or journaling.

Writelight is a tool that helps to use freewriting and other writing exercises for personal development or for boosting results in work and life.

Freewriting is a liberating, freestyle form of writing that acts as a problem-solving tool, which helps people think through their problems. Freewriting pushes the brain to think longer, deeper, and more unconventionally than that it normally would.

To practice freewriting, you just need to set your timer, and write continuously whatever comes to mind. Do not pay attention to grammar or typos, do not stop to reflect on what you are writing, just continue writing until the designated time has run out.

We created Writelight specially for freewriting, but it can be used with many other writing exercises.

Writelight is perfect for journaling, if you practice journal writing, you can keep doing it as usual, just add 5-7 minutes for writing with prompts from Writelight.

If you are doing morning pages, start with a prompt form Writelight. You can keep writing for three pages, and use the quote (when the time runs out there is a quote) as a second prompt to give your ideas a new direction.

Writelight is also useful for expressive writing.

Why should you use Writelight?

Sometimes it is very hard to come up with an idea, what to write about. It can be struggling and not very effective to use any of common writing exercises without a good prompt.

Writelight has solved this problem once and for all.

Open the website or the app, choose the time, choose one of five topics, and start writing. It’s easy, it’s effective.

How to use Writelight.

Get your pen and paper ready, set the timer, get a prompt, and start writing. Once the time is up, there’ll be a quote. You can use the quote as a second prompt and keep writing for a minute or two.

Writelight can be used as a web-service on, there’s also an app available both on Google Play and App Store.

We have problems with the app on some old devices, this shouldn’t stop you.

If the app doesn’t work, go to the website, it’s working fine on smartphones. On the website we also have more backgrounds, so it’s a bit more fun. New prompts and new quotes also appear on the website first.

Follow us on facebook and Instagram for inspiring prompts, interesting quotes and advice on personal development and writing exercises.

Free writing is a fantastic tool for problem solving, generating creative ideas or clearing your mind. Writelight makes daily writing both easy and productive.

Customer Reviews

Like it, but could use more functionality


I'm using this app as a means to generate prompts to use in my Day One journal. Something that would make this process so much simpler would be a way to either copy the text of the prompt or method to more directly pull text from the app to share into a Workflow that could process that information.

Developer Response

Thanks! We are looking for ways to improve the app in the following updates, and we will take note of your suggestion.



I love this. I always have a hard time trying to figure out what to write about, but this gives me a prompt and makes me actually think. I love it
