Ever feel that you’d actually get some work done if you just didn’t have the distraction of the internet? If so, consider downloading two pieces of software:

 

Freedom – a program that locks you away from the internet for up to eight hours. Once your time is set, the only way you can deactivate it is either wait until the timer ends or reboot your computer which might not be worth the hassle.

 

OmmWriter – a beautiful distraction-free writing environment where you can close the door behind you to focus on your writing in peace. The program was influenced by the designers‘ experience with meditation and has a Zen look and feel. It’s a real sanctuary for you to be alone with your thoughts and ideas.
