Writing Resources - Z - Zenpen

Welcome to the Insecure Writer’s Support Group Website! Our A to Z Challenge theme – Writing Resources!

There are a lot of great distraction-free writing tools out there. If you'd rather not download an app, though, ZenPen is a wonderful web-based alternative with a simple design and minimal clutter.

To use the editor, simply go directly to the ZenPen site. Erase the starter text and start writing your own. It supports basic formatting like bold, italics, quotes, and links. You can set a word count target and save the whole thing in HTML or plain text when you're done. That's it. If you really want to minimize distractions while you're writing, head to ZenPen and press F11 to full screen your browser.

I like some web based tools, which is less complication in terms of my hardware. Haven't tried this one though.

While cool, I feel like my distractions stem from my own brain being too loud most of the time
