    "Exceptional Distraction-Free Writer"

    February 20, 2013  |   By Imogen7Ryan


    Many features including: Formatting; Font/Colour/Size & background choices; Save/Save As; Print; Character Symbols; Word/Character Count; Full Screen toggle - And much more.

    It's perfect for amateur and professional Writer's alike as well as for those who just want to use it as a Journalling tool.

    Very helpful reference/resource section to Dictionaries, Thesaurus, Wikipedia, Poetry, plus more.

    On opening the program it always starts with an inspiring or amusing quote.


    None that is worth mentioning.


    WriteMonkey is probably the best no-cost distraction free editor that I have come across. I would even say that it rivals any paid for programs. There are so many functions at hand with Right-Clicking; It is very impressive. Runs smoothly on Windows 8. I highly recommend it.
