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

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' (http://they.misled.us/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

Richard

    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.
