Mark Pilgrim: WrongRoom "These programs ((Write|J?Dark)Room) aren't for serious writers at all. They're for the writer's equivalent of script kiddies -- people who want to go to Starbucks and pick up chicks with their MacBooks and their iPods and their glowing full-screen text editors." Exactly what I thought when I first looked at WriteRoom. If you cannot write because there is way too much distraction -- it is your own problem, and don't blame the text editor! I seriously doubt changing to a plain vanilla full-screen text editor with absolutely no functionality at all would resolve your writer's block.
