Dan ChudnovbloggedaboutWriteRoomlast week, and I was just downloading it to have a go when my colleagueRichard Wallisalso brought it to my attention (I think he'd read Dan's post, too, rather than some spookier piece of synchronicity).
Like Scott, I'm finding it oddly helpful in clearing my mind and focussing upon the task at hand (a document over which I have been agonizing, rather stupidly, formonths).
One additional thing I'd like to see is a timer; I want to tell the program to prompt me after a given period of time, so that I can pop out and see what's been happening on RSS feeds, emails, IMs, etc. Otherwise, every time I stop typing there's that nagging niggle at the back of your mind to stop - just for a minute - to see if anything important has happened.
Note to self - remember toregisterthis piece of shareware. It's worth it, even without the timer.
