FocusWriter

Whether you’re writing the next blockbuster from your bedroom, or you just need to get your work done without distraction, FocusWriter might be the application for you. It’s a word processor that is designed to be distraction-free. Most of the time when you’re using it, the only thing onscreen is your writing.

When you move the mouse to the top of the screen, the menus for changing the settings and saving your files appear. To keep your motivation up, you can set a daily goal in the Preferences settings for time spent writing or (better still) words written per day. When you move the mouse to the bottom of the screen, you can see the word count and how much progress you have made towards your daily goal.

To install FocusWriter, use

sudo apt-get install focuswriter

To start FocusWriter, go into your desktop environment and click its entry in the Office category of your Programs menu.
