So I’m trying to get back into writing more fiction work, and I’ve found that the actual writing environment has a big impact on my productivity. When the look, feel, and sound of a tool matches the tone of the writing I’m working on, it gets so much easier to focus.

It was released in the late 1990’s, was way ahead of it’s time, and occasionally I’ll play through it again just to immerse myself in the wonderful story-driven world it creates. So naturally, when I’m working on SF-heavy writing, a SF environment helps 🙂
