If there is one thing that I am absolutely sure of, it is that I love writing. It was something in which I was excelling in school. My pleasure in writing inspired me to pick up the major, minor and certificate that I have chosen to pursue in college...all writing intensive.
Now, while I thoroughly enjoy the process of developing an idea, brainstorming the ways in which to communicating it, getting it on paper and engaging in an intense editing process...it does not always come easy. I am some who can get easily distracted and can lose focus with one swift click over to Buzzfeed--perhaps I should just pursue a career at Buzzfeed?
Two years ago, I discovered the computer application OmmWriter from a fellow blogger. I downloaded the free version and found a new place to write without being so easily distracted by the evil internet. OmmWriter opens so that it takes up the entire screen; as in you cannot access your application bar either. Good thinking on their part! The background is a soft white, gray or pink; you can adjust fonts and the sounds that you hear. It is suggested that you use the application with your earbuds/headphones plugged in to get the better experience--the light clicking as you type letters in and the calming background music.
Some of my best writing assignments have been written on OmmWriter. I enjoy just writing on it and not worrying about formatting as I am working...better to deal with that later! I highly recommend this program. You can download the program (here). When I downloaded it two years ago, I did have the option of getting it for free, but it looks like that is no longer the case. However, there is no set price for it...you determine what it is worth.
Do you use OmmWriter? Will you try it out?
