Web: Whether you’re starting the next great novel or you just have your own thoughts you’d like to get down without being distracted, typWrittr is a simple, easy-to-use webapp that gives you space to write, an attractive background, and just enough options to help you get going without getting distracted by buttons, tools and other sites.

The webapp itself is simple enough — you sign in either with Facebook or Twitter, or create an account using your email address. Once you’re logged in, you can choose from preset backgrounds for your writing window, or you can upload your own background for your writing environment (like a spaceship bridge or starfield if you’re writing Sci-Fi, or something else that inspires you.

You can spend some time tweaking and customising everything from the colour of the writing window and its text to the font and size of the text — even the paper’s line shadow and border can be customised. Once they’re locked in, however, there’s nothing else to really do but write.

As soon as the options window is shut, it’s just you, the empty writing space, and your background. For the best effect, full-screen your web browser, and you’ll be all set to start cranking out your short story, novel, or (heaven-forbid) article or paper. All of your edits and documents are automatically saved, and you can get back to any of them whenever you need to. Hit the link below to give it a try.



  • As soon as the options window is shut, it’s just you, the empty writing space, and your background, and the entire internet which is only a tab away.

    this would be better as a program, so you have the ability to disconnect and use it away from the internet.
