For those of you who are writers, you may want to check out this link for the word processing software Writeroom
Writeroom is billed as ‘Distraction-free writing’ for those who “prefer a typewriter but live in the digital world”. You can download the software for free to your Mac if you don’t want to make the $24.95 donation. For people in the Windows world (my sympathies), they also make an app called “Darkroom”, which basically is the same thing for the Windows OS.
It’s like having a fullscreen Alphasmart.
