This post goes out to all of my aspiring writers. I am a published author myself and know how difficult it can be to get away from you writer's block and let your creative literary juices flow freely. Anything that can - will - distract a writer from the task at hand. Today's guest took down one major barrier to an author's creative struggle, typing distractions, and created a minimalist writing platform called Moopato eBook Writer.
"I never understood why people write their books in Word or similiar Wysiwig software. It's so easy to get distracted by the look that one almost forgets to continue writing and BAM hours are wasted with style fiddling. The author is left wondering why he or she has written no new text. I believe there's a better way and so I started developing Moopato. Moopato's main focus is writing in a user interface that does not distract the author from writing his or her book." -Jens, Founder of Moopato.com
As you can see, the interface is incredibly clean with nothing more or less than an author needs. If you are struggling to find your zen writing space, I highly recommend giving Moopato a look. The concept makes total sense to me. I bet all of my minimalist writers out there will agree.
