Using the computer to write can be incredibly efficient. Or not. Sometimes it is very easy to be distracted by the many tabs, tweets, and media streams that permeate our modern writing machines. A great solution for this problem is Quiet Write. When you use Quiet Write, everything else stops. (You can't even SEE other programs or options if you put your browser into full screen mode.) I've been using it as I complete sections of my dissertation each evening, and it has helped my productivity immensely. I also think it's a wonderful tool for universal design. Enjoy!
