Work with­out dis­trac­tions us­ing the min­i­mal­ist WriteMon­key app

“Es­cape so­cial me­dia, emails and clut­tered pro­grams with WriteMon­key – a sim­ple writ­ing app that lets you fo­cus on what re­ally mat­ters”

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - EXPLORE - Your guide Cat El­lis says…

You’ve got your word pro­ces­sor and web browser open, ready to knuckle down to some se­ri­ous work – but wait, what’s that new email no­ti­fi­ca­tion about? It could be some­thing im­por­tant. You’d bet­ter check. And there’s a new alert on that Face­book tab you left open. What could that be?

Even with the best will in the world, it’s dif­fi­cult to avoid dis­trac­tions, and they can eas­ily eat up your time. That’s why you need WriteMon­key – a sim­ple but very ef­fec­tive text ed­i­tor that blocks out ev­ery­thing ex­cept the page you’re work­ing on.

There’s no un­nec­es­sary clut­ter, such as tool­bars, and if you re­ally do need to look some­thing up on­line, you can do so with a quick key­board short­cut and then close the small browser win­dow im­me­di­ately once you’ve fin­ished.

Let’s get started with WriteMon­key and put an end to pro­cras­ti­na­tion.

CAT’s best tip! WriteMon­key’s timer is great for use in con­junc­tion with the Po­modoro Tech­nique (www.po­modor­otech­nique.com) which helps you get more done by split­ting your time into pe­ri­ods of in­tense con­cen­tra­tion in­ter­spersed with sched­uled breaks.
