    Default Any writers use this program?

    WriteRoom — Distraction free writing software for Mac & iPhone

    I just discovered it and I find it actually helps alot in terms of not being distracted. I'm thinking I might go ahead and buy it since i'm using the free trial right now.

    I still use unlined paper and a pen. I'm old fashioned like that.

    i've seen this prog, but i got rid of my mac. think there's a pc equivalent too.

    Wannabe writers write the words, but the words write the writer.

    What kind of appalling words wrote you?

    Don' blame me mate, blame the words. Those little bastards - look, they are creeping across the page, making me look like an appalling fool. If I had my way, I would shoot every last one of them. There is no end to them - look, they just keep on going - taking no notice of you or me.

    But of course I was hooked at an early age - for when they taught me to read an write, they never told me I wouldn't be able to stop.

    My only hope lies in the noosphere where I hope to replace my addiction to words with the spoken word and video.

    And this is where you come in mate, if you keep on pointing out what an appalling job the words are doing, perhaps I will find the courage to give up words forever.

    And it will be all due to you, dear SolitaryWalker.

    I also like it, because its sort of like writing on a type writer, except not. The fact is type writer's are awesome because my hand cramps up when i do long hand and computer distract me with facebook and, I don't own a typewriter but this way I can write without my hand cramping and not being distracted.
