Favorite Things - ZenWriter
Enter ZenWriter. There are beautiful backgrounds, soothing music, and no notification of errors. I had been working on one first draft for years. Yes, years. I switched to ZenWriter and in weeks I had my first draft finished. I'm not going to say my speed was entirely due to ZenWriter, but it helped. I now have a draft that is very poorly written, but clean in regards to plot, character motivation, etc. For me that's the difficult part. Now I can have fun writing the fancy sentences.
My first version of ZenWriter was free. There is still a trial version, but they are now charging $9.95 for the full version. I had such success with ZenWriter I went ahead and paid for the full version.
How do you stay focused when you're writing?
