      Almost everyone thinks FocusWriter is a great alternative to WriteMonkey.
      callyw FocusWriter has similar window customization, such as, background/foreground colour, font size and type selection and sizing. It is also Portable and is also free. Not as many features as WriteMonkey, but the distraction-free enviroment is the same.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      tuva-hayabi WriteMonkey is for distraction-free writing, and novelWriter helps you organize your story. Therefore these two applications have different purposes, but I like them both, depending on what I intend to do.
