Cold Turkey Writer is basically impossible to exit before you reach your writing goal. Since Writer is essentially turns your computer into a typewriter, you'd be surprised how little time you need to finish your work. The fullscreen block provides a distraction free environment but it also acts as a motivator: so that you can use other apps again.

Portable and always handy:
Cold Turkey Writer runs as a stand-alone program, which means there is no installer. This makes it easy for you to copy the program on a USB stick and use it on multiple computers. You can also share it with friends, just please don't share it online.
Cold Turkey Writer Pro includes features for advanced writers. Tiny productivity tricks like disabling the delete/backspace key are great for typing out the first draft.
Go easy on your eyes by using a light theme for the day and a dark theme at night.
Font size can be changed between three available sizes and between serif and sans-serif fonts to your personal preference.
