Origin Is Great

I don't know how people can disklike something so awesome and so simple. Maybe, its because most of them aspire and have never actually gone professional.

As a real writer you know you write in chunks and not linearly. You write toward a deadline and usually based on 1000 word progresss until your due date.

Origin is perfect for real writing. It has a constantly displayed word count (dev can you please make the word count more prominent and/or make it where I can have it count down instead of up?), it keeps you focused on what matters - actually writing, and lastly, with this new feature of disabling of the delete key, it keeps me focused on getting my dirty draft out quicker.

This app is exactly what you need - a slap in the face to make. you realize all the BS you tell yourself is just BS - write! Everything else is a waste of time.

I'm a pro writer with 20 experience. I've used all the major writing apps. This app has something very special. I really appreciate the limits that come with it. There is no easy export, i.e. there is no copy/paste function - it helps you STAY within the app and your writing session, because it's a 'hassle' to export the text (it isn't hassle, but takes few extra thoughts). Origin has an identy as a writing app.
