Download Squad pointed me to this Mac application called WriteRoom. The trick is simple: fill the page with ONLY the screen you’ll be typing on, and do autosaves the whole time you’re typing. It’s perfect if you need to buckle down and focus on writing and can’t afford the distractions.
I like that you can edit the colors, the fonts, and everything about the look and feel, but that at the end of it all, you have this uber-simple interface. I changed the font, set the color to a more golden color, and then I was in good shape. It’s a great app and worth trying, especially if you toggle to full screen mode right away.
Any Windows users know a similar free app?
