You can’t quit your job to write that novel that’s been rattling around in your head for years–so how can you find the time to write it so you can make millions and quit your job? According to TechRadar, there are a handful of amazing free apps out there to help you solve this conundrum. One is FocusWriter. It’s available for Linux, Windows and OS X, and is designed to eliminate distractions so you can actually get on with the job of writing. It lets you hide other apps, customize the way your text appears on screen and keep track of your progress. If you’re feeling particularly old-school you can even add typewriter sound effects. Next, many writing apps concentrate on print, but nowadays, many authors publish direct to ebooks. There are lots of ways to do that, including exporting from your favorite word processor. However, ‘Sigil’ is designed specifically for ebook editing; it isn’t something that’s been bolted onto an existing print-focused app. FInally, ‘Hemingway’ is available as a free web app. It’s designed to highlight long, complex sentences and common grammatical errors. Its use of colors makes it abundantly clear how clear your text is–or isn’t.
