    5. The key to good writing is not that magical glass of Bordeaux, the right kind of tobacco or that groovy background music. The key is focus. What you need to write well is a spartan setting that allows you to fully concentrate on your text and nothing but your text.

      Word Online vs WriteRoom opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      WriteRoom is a minimalistic text editor designed for distraction-free writing. It creates .TXT and .RTF by design, and let's you focus on writing. Furthermore, WriteRoom is not an online layout editor.

      WriteRoom is designed for distraction-free writing. That's its raison d'être. Any writing software that doesn't somehow reduce distraction is not an alternative to it.
