Windows only: Visually WriteMonkey is a dead simple text editor with a strong emphasis on distraction free writing. Under the hood it’s packed with handy features to make writing easier.
WriteMonkey is a portable text editor which runs by default in full-screen mode with a simple black background and green text, like Darkroom on Windows and Writeroom on the Mac. Unlike the previous two applications, WriteMonkey has quite a lot going on behind the scenes. There is a progress bar you can toggle on and off to serve both as a simple motivator or as a word counter if you’re writing towards a set amount of text. There is also a timer which can be attached to the progress bar. WriteMonkey supports bookmarks within the text and has a text repository, a permanent clipboard attached to the document you are working on which allows you to save snippets of text.
