The key to good writing is not that magical glass of Bordeaux, the right kind of tobacco or that groovy background music. The key is focus. What you need to write well is a spartan setting that allows you to fully concentrate on your text and nothing but your text.
When you initially load Writer it looks shocking plain but once you start using it you realize that’s the beauty of it. Minimal distractions in a nice clean interface (with good typography too!).
