Distraction Free Mode

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.
