    This little trick is only for Mac users: Writing can be distracting because your computer screen is distracting.  Fortunately there's a 100% free way to avoid distraction on your Mac computer:
    Step 1.) Open up Text Editor. This is a free text editor on every Mac. Step 2.) Press [CONTROL] + [COMMAND] + [F].  This will make the text editor full screen. Step 3.) Press [COMMAND] + [PLUS SIGN] to make the text larger. Press [COMMAND + [MINUS SIGN] to make the text smaller.
    That's it! This little hack will blank out your entire screen into one big writing space:

    Screen after Distraction Free Writing Trick: Mac Distraction Free Writing Trick

    It's pretty easy to see why a writer will have an easier time cranking out quality work in this zen-like environment. No distracting icons. No distracting menus. No distracting programs. Just pure white & black writing space. As a copywriter who writes all day for a living, I find this trick incredibly helpful.  The sheer nothingness on the screen except the text helps clear my thoughts and come up with ideas faster. I personally like making the text ridiculously large, because every time I press a key it fills up a bunch of the screen which makes me feel more productive :)   If you have a Mac computer with newest operating system El Capitan installed, give this a try and write on that big white space. Mmmmmm.....writing never felt so good :) Sincerely, Neville Medhora P.S.  If you need help getting started writing....here's How to Kill Writer's Block, and here's a bunch of Copywriting Guides.
