Zen Writer

One of my new favorite free apps is zenwriter. I have it loaded on my computer and use it as a private diary.
Here are the reasons I really like it:

Pretty background to write on

Sounds like a typewrite when I am typing

and it plays soothing music that is not distracting

All in all, I actually find that I have an easier time writing my thoughts and feelings when I am using the program then without. Yet nothing is perfect so in order to be fair here are a few of the draw backs.

I have not figured out how to easily move my documents into word documents. I have to use the ctrl-c and ctrl-v to copy and paste. I have to mess with the formatting. However, it does save everything automatically and I can make a new document for each page. Since I am using this like a diary, it is working out pretty well. 

Perhaps you are already using zenwriter and have something you would like to share with me. I am not the greatest at using all these apps to their fullest potential, so I truly welcome your comments. I am always up for learning new things or perhaps you just want to say hi, feel free to do that too!
