  18. The key to good writing is not that magical glass ofBordeaux, the right kind of tobacco or that groovybackground music. The key is focus. What you need towrite well is a spartan setting that allows you to fullyconcentrate on your text and nothing but your text.Many professional writers use SimpleText or Texteditbecause these are the only writing programs that aretotally distraction free. But text editors are not perfect.That’s why we made Writer.
