"But if, when it comes right down to it, full screen is your holy grail, and the ultimate antidote to the bric-a-brac of Word, then you must enter the WriteRoom, the ultimate spartan writing utopia." — Virginia Heffernan, New York Times
I created WriteRoom as an alternative to Microsoft Word. WriteRoom’s full screen writing environment gets your computer out of the way so that you can focus on your work. The result is a subtle clearing of the mind that I think helps you write better.

也许你正在用Mircosoft Office Word,花三十分钟来书写你所谓的文稿,然后花两个小时对稿子进行排版;
最后一项”Edit in WR”即可以选择安装WriteRoom提供的,—在你编辑文字的时候快速切换到以WriteRoom的形式编辑.比如在你的电子邮件中,在RSS阅读器中,亦或是在你的浏览器中.
WriteRoom是Hog Bay Software 旗下产品,售价25$,不过用mac的都知道有那2个神器的吧~ :x .
Drafting the post in Markdown: WriteRoom allows you to concentrate on writing
When I want to draft a new post, the first thing I do is open ecto (or MarsEdit), choose the blog I want to post to from the list, fill in the title and then switch to WriteRoom: if using ecto, you are reduced to using copy/paste; in MarsEdit, you can actually designate an “1].editor”, although I have found that feature somewhat unreliable in Leopard [
The reason I insist on drafting in WriteRoom is that it allows me to concentrate on writing the post, without distractions: WriteRoom’s soothing, plain full-screen editor obscures everythingthan my draft post, allowing me to do just that. It can be customized to look exactly as I want. All my spelling checking tools (which at this stage are all I need apart from keyboard and screen, since all the formatting I’m applying is in Markdown) are available in the application. Hitting ESC allows me to toggle between WriteRoom and the rest of my Mac if I need to do so, for any reason. Of course, if you feel more comfortable drafting in TextMate (and a lot of people, when they get addicted to an application, tend to use it for absolutely everything) then by all means skip this step. I, however, find that WriteRoom allows me to concentrate on the writing part, and that TextMate’s strong point is for coding, which comes later.
Writing my post in WriteRoom does marvels for my productivity and is in no way a luxury compared with writing directly in TextMate. Because it fills the screen and yet is such a powerful writing application, I can concentrate on the quality and structure of my content without being tempted to add a link, change the code or search the web for a picture. Doing things sequentially is really the key.
At this point, I will be writing in Markdown, because that saves a lot of time, even though I will be converting the post to HTML well before it gets posted to my blog so that I don’t have to worry about text format at the later stages
