New breakthrough in writing... Writing in a darkroom!

by 6 comments
Hi there.

For all Warriors who write a lot (i.e articles, blogs, ebooks, etc), let me introduce you to a tool I was recently introduced to.

On my mac this is called 'WriteRoom' and on a PC it is called 'Dark Room' (

The application is a no frills word processor which on launching, immediately turns your screen to black, and you are faced with just a blinking green cursor and your thoughts. Your desktop is totally replaced with the void of black space.

No distractions, no fancy buttons to press, just you alone with your thoughts.

I now use writeroom all the time, even to draft emails. On my mac, it will even read back the text so I can listen to it before I send. This works for really well for me.

Anyway, both mac and pc versions are free to try, and I encourage you to do so!

Happy writing

    Sounds good! I actually like the sound of this. It'll take me back to my Commodore Amiga days!

      Remember TxEd Plus? When I got my first PC, I went crazy trying to find a text editor for it that was even close.

    Green text on a black background is hard on the eyes.

    If you're worried about distractions, why not just maximize your word processor window so it fills the screen?

      You can actually set it to a white background with black text. It is more about the fact that it fills you screen the moment you launch the application, and from then on, no distractions.

    Some warriors think that is very important to make a clear difference between a copywriter, content writer, and writer. Honestly, I thought it wasn't such a big deal. Then, after seeing that this question repeats itself more than once in a few threads, I decided to pay attention to it. It turns out that you think you know, at least this was the case with me, but actually you don't. So, I did a little bit a research about it. A writer is a general term. Hope we can all agree about it. As soon as we associate money and sales with the writing we enter the copywriting zone. I used this formula, which helped me to better understand this semantics gymnastics. Let's see how accurate it is:

    I listed for sale to afford me time and resources to build I had in mind to sell at 70k or something around that figure. Brokers evaluated it to worth $90k - $105k but I don't want to wait too long to sell. The site receives 150k users monthly with up to 400k page views. All the traffic comes from Google search. The niche is celebrity news and current affairs. The website currently has over 2,000 green articles.

    Christmas is coming, and you all know what that means, Christmas is also one of those moments of year when marketers burns their brains out for creating good an innovative ideas for their campaigns, the money will be out for the taking, and a good marketing campaign is essential for gaining at least a portion of it. Influencer marketing has been one of the brand favorite techniques for getting their products out there, they have really been investing a lot of money and resources on this kind of marketing, and it has really been giving a lot of results, people tend to trust in the influencers they follow, so when they recommend a product, their followers buy it, it really quite simple. However there is a new kind of influencers being born: the microinfluencers, this is, people that have small audiences instead of big ones, you know, people who has 1000 or 5000 followers on Twitter or Instagram instead of a million, brand are starting to target them for their campaigns, and there are several reasons that explain this:

    Hello Warriors. I was wondering if any of you could lend me a little advice I'm planning to launch a new product next month in the music niche. I've created 3 free videos to give to my JV partners as part of the pre-launch. Here's my problem: 8 of my JV partners aren't familiar with product launches or with e-mail marketing. They use Facebook groups to communicate with their audience (<---- that's the bad news)
