Why Writer?

Probably the most stubborn text editor ever made.

Writer blocks everything on your computer until you reach your writing goal. Your goal can either be a duration of time or number of words typed. Once you click start, you can't go back.

Watch your productivity soar.

You'd be surprised how little time you need to finish your work. Although the fullscreen block provides a distraction free environment, it also does something else. It motivates you to finish, so you can use your computer again!

Your productivity suffers when you try to split your attention over multiple tasks. There's even science to back this up.

How It Works


Download desktop app.

There is no installer for Writer. On macOS, simply drag it to your Applications folder and double click the icon to launch the app. On Windows, just double click the app to run it. Mobile devices are not supported because of OS limitations.


Set a timer or desired word count.

You have two options for how long you want the block to last. A certain number of minutes can be set, or you can choose to block yourself until you've written a certain number of words.


Start your block and get writing!

After you click Start you'll only be allowed to use Writer until the block is over.

Stop procrastinating.
