A really nifty download to assist your concentration in writing found at Kim Komando site.
We're all writing more than ever. Maybe you're crafting the next great novel. Maybe you're blogging about your hobbies. Or perhaps you're just composing formal e-mail messages.
You'll be doing all of it on your computer. But your computer wasn't built just for writing. It can do a thousand other things. And all of them are begging for your attention. It can be tough to focus.
CreaWriter will help you block out distractions. It covers the entire screen with a soothing image. You'll hear the calming crackle of a fire. And you're given a simple space for writing. That's pretty much it. You can focus on writing and nothing else.
You can change the background image and sound. Or you can turn them off all together. You also don't have to block out the world entirely. You can make the background transparent. You'll see a hint of your desktop. That way you wont miss urgent e-mail, instant messages and alerts.
