FocusWriter is a word processor with writing-specific features. This video gives an overview of starting a writing project and how to set the preferences to fit your workflow.

Program Features

  • Writing Timer
  • Daily Goals (Time/Words)

This program is ideal for long-form fiction or non-fiction but is easy enough to adapt to any writing project. As a free download, you can’t beat the price-point and it has enough power to manage most writing projects.

There are a few features FocusWriter could add to help with book-length projects.

  • Being able to compile multiple sessions into a single file would make a full project export painless.
