I’ve been hunting for a writing tool that won’t distract me from the task(s) at hand and I think I may have found something that will work. It’s called OmmWriter Dana II and it essentially creates a blank slate to write. There are no distractions – all of the Growl announcements are turned off automatically at start-up and turned on when you’re done – and the app includes a nice, lilting musical score.
The app “costs” $4.11 but you can give them as much as you see fit, which is pretty hippy dippy but fine by me. Give it a try and see if you can keep your “wild monkey” caged as you write.
