A tool for distraction free writing

I know more than a few people who read this are writers of one sort or another. I know when I am trying to write there is nothing more distracting than social media and the internet. Well, that and games.

Lifehacker looks at an interesting tool called FORCEdraft


Windows: We’ve all done it: in the middle of writing you get a notification that looks a lot more interesting, then another, and another. Suddenly, you’re distracted and procrastinating. FORCEdraft is a writing tool that stays open and blocks everything else on your computer until you hit the writing goal you set in the beginning.

FORCEdraft is small, free, portable, and simple. Just open it and select a preference to block everything on your computer until you complete a time limit, a word goal, or you tell the app to stop. Whatever preference you select in the beginning is the preference you’re stuck with until you finish. Your computer will only be good for one thing until then: writing.
