I wish I had time to read at least something on this list. I’ll probably try.

Celebrating it with my best friend, Yulka. We are in a nice hotel room, away from temporary home and others. After relaxing in spa it’s cool to lay in bed and write stuff. Everything is nice :)

WriteRoom

WriteRoom is a piece of software for writing.

That’s actually it. It’s dead simple and it offers you the most productive environment to write – blank screen with your text. No distraction, no “features” to clutter up sourrounding space. Imagine you go to a quiet closet with only a sheet of paper and a pen.

When I installed it my first question was how someone can sell such a minimalistic word processor. The answer came after 3 minutes of writing – because it works with you on the right vibe. In 2 days I found out that WriteRoom doesn’t only remove nuisance, it actually helps writing. I found myself easily getting through my usual writing hiccups such as not being able to write for more than 20-30 minutes, rewrites, and reorganization. A writer can understand how much this means to productivity, in some cases it can have boolean effect on the result – if the work is ever finished or abandoned.

Even for an occasional writer such as myself I found WriteRoom making big difference. No wonder that pros go for it. Putting WriteRoom on top of my must-have pieces of software to install.
