This is "Just Write, Dammit!" As in, that's all you can do when you use
it. As in, put Twitter/Facebook/G+/Farmville/etc. down and just write,
dammit. To quote my father during bouts of homework, "put the pencil ON
the paper and MOVE YOUR HAND!" It blocks out all of the background noise
of your computer so you can focus on one thing: writing.

It runs on any operating system that supports Java 6. It runs in
complete full screen mode. The text is large to encourage flow. The
colors are cool to avoid eye strain. A small timer tells you how long
you have been writing, and a counter tells you how many words you've
written so far. It saves to plain text files and offers no formatting
capability whatsoever. Because you shouldn't be spending time on making
words emboldened or italicized or picking a font. You should just be
writing, dammit.

Standard keyboard shortcuts manage the Open/Save/Close operations. There
are no mouse interactions, because your hands should remain on the
keyboard where they belong--writing--dammit!

So what the hell are you doing? Get to work!
