Windows: If you checked out the Mac-only Ommwriter and were disappointed that there wasn't an equivalent tool for Windows, you're in luck. CreaWriter is a distraction free writing tool that lets you customise your writing experience.
Click on the image above for a closer look.
CreaWriter is a free Windows download that creates a distraction-free writing zone. The screenshot above is the entire screen, no toolbars, alerts or widgets visible. In fact the icons you see in the upper right corner are only there when the mouse is passed over them — they allow you to create a new document, save your document, and make minor changes like increasing or decreasing the font size for ease of use. You can save your work as a TXT, RTF or DOC, compatible with nearly every word processor around if you want to import it for post-editing.
CreaWriter has both a background image and background ambient noise enabled. You can disable them all together and just have a white writing space, but we customised ours — we liked the RainyMood site so much that we shared with you last week, we made our background noise a rainstorm and found a picture similar to the background image of RainyMood. If you want an in-depth look at all the features you can check out the overview at How-To Geek or jump right to the author's site below to download the application.
CreaWriter is freeware, Windows only.
