Ommwriter – the Zen calm of writing tools
Channel a Zen calm with this wonderful writing tool – Ommwriter.
Introduced to me by my writing tool fundi friend it has proven well worth the effort of downloading it onto two separate computers at home.
I’m beginning to think I love this tool as much as I do Scrivener. Facing the first use of Ommwriter with bland disinterest I was pleasantly surprised by it’s simplicity and ease of use.
Available in two download versions – free and paid, the user is able to trial this writing tool before purchasing. But you won’t go wrong. Once you get over the minor inconvenience of saving your work in files not directly associated with whatever writing program you are currently using, that is. I must confess that took some getting used to, but let’s face it the means justify the end in this instance.
The writer works against the serene backdrop of a pale landscape scene with the melodic sounds of meditative music in the background. There is a limited background choice along with an equally limited range of musical accompaniment but neither of these can be considered an absolute negative considering the whole point of the tool is to encourage writing. It does not pretend to be entertainment.
But boy does Ommwriter work. I usually manage 500 to 700 words an hour on a very good day, but with Ommwriter I manage to churn out on average 500 words in 30 minutes. A pretty good average if I do say so myself.
Have you tried Ommwriter yet? Anyone like to agree or not please feel free to comment.
