It’s called OmmWriter. I downloaded the free version, Dana, and just a few nights ago upgraded to Dana 2, which you can get for a very small donation. The first version is really wonderful, and the upgrade gives you a few more sound and background options. I actually quite like the default, but I am enjoying using it so much that I really just wanted to give them some money.
Now, I have tried many writing programmes, and none of them really work for me. They are all pretty, and cool and have lots of functions, but I always find myself switching back to Word because it’s easy. I will still use Word once I get past the first draft stage, but I can definitely say I am a convert to Dana.
It’s just so simple, so clean. The music choices are perfect, the background choices are lovely and the real world just seems to melt away, allowing me to connect with just the words, both in my head, and on the page. That’s all I really need. To sink into my writing, to shut everything else out. The bells and whistles of other programmes are great, if you are into that kind of thing, but for me, I just need a page and the words, and Omm facilitates that really well.
