As a writer, one thing I love more than anything else in the world is WordPress’s (or maybe it is a standard feature of TinyMCE?) “distraction free mode.” This is a software feature that appeals to my artistic, creative side.
With one mouse click everything goes away. No toolbars, menus, or option boxes. No meta information. Just a nice big header to type in and a big white space to type the article. Everything extraneous just fades away. They’re still there if I need them. I can summon up whatever I like just by shaking my mouse, but I’m not going to. I like the big empty expanse.
It’s an entire page of possibilities.
The last thing you see before the blank page is a little bit of gray text that says, “Just Write.” Thanks, WordPress, I think I will.
