Here's what I wrote the first time I used WriteRoom -
I love this!

Just pure green text floating in the void.

Each letter born from the void as I command it from my keyboard.

The blinking line cursor begs me to write. Words spill out of a vessel by surprise, a vessel long thought to be empty.

Why have we forgotten this simplicity? On second thought, I'm glad to have it back.


This is an excellent app... Block out the multi-distractions. Ignore your dock. Turn off Adium, Skype, Mail and get some critical work done. The author added some great new features in the current version including CMD+1, CMD+2 etc to navigate between files. Don't bother with opening, closing and saving files. Do not respond. Just write!

Sweet! It boosted my productivity by 200%! Great little app. And for free!

At first, I'll admit I kinda thought "wtf?" - then I used it for a a couple hours... and found it very useful. I love that it can Quit quickly and autosave.

I love this program. Set it to a trigger on Quicksilver so I just hit f8 and I am instantly in writing mode.

This is the best text editor for writers ever!
