I got this morning's bout of writing done with a little help from a fantastic program called ZenWriter. If you haven't heard of it, it's a great tool for keeping yourself focused: it maximizes itself to fill the entire screen, so you aren't tempted to click anything else on your toolbar or, if you're like me, check your email and media feeds for the fiftieth time "just in case". It allows you to keep music running in the background, too, and has a lot of customizable settings so that you can achieve perfect writing zone Zen.
I was lucky enough to catch wind of it during its early developmental stages, when it was still free, but it's well worth what they charge for it, now. If you're curious, you can check it out here (the link will open in a new window).
To all of you who've helped spread the word and given me your feedback so far: thank you so much! It means a lot to me to know that know you're out there and interested in my little fictional corner of the world, and my neurotic, gangly accountant. February may not have been kind to a lot of us (thank you, winter storms), but here's looking forward to March!
