Usually when I am writing, I get distracted a lot. And I mean a lot. And this is one of the reasons that i don’t write as much as I want to.
However tonight I found this tool called OmmWriter. And it is specifically designed to zone yourself out from all distractions and write. Just write. It helps me a lot to do productive writing.
When starting the application, which runs in full-screen mode only, it suggests that it works best with your headphones on. And this is where the zoning out begins. After the splash screen the application plays a soothing ambient song in the background. And it helps me focus on my screen.
Music normally distracts my thought from the task at hand, but this music does not. Excellent!
As soon as you start typing you hear the sound of your keyboard. A little something that the application adds. I think it works motivating to hear the ticks of the keyboard. It motivates to stick to the rhythm of typing.
Proof that this works is that last night I’ve written a 900 word blogpost in under an hour. Possibly one of the longest blogposts that I’ve ever written. Now that’s some productive writing!
If you are interested in this application, you can download the application for free at the OmmWriter website. It is available for Mac, Windows, and iPad.
See, another 200+ word blogpost done in under 10 minutes. Way to go!
