Distraction free writing?

Posted 12-03-2017 at 11:08 AM by GazL

I really don't understand what these text editors that specialise in
'Distraction free writing' are all about. I use emacs and I just type
into a blank screen. I use vi/vim and similarly I just type into a
blank screen.

I don't get it... where's the distraction: M-x tetris?

    I need a distraction free text editor that will physically remove my son's phone from his hand, turn down the music on the stereo, and make the computer a brick until his assignment is done and proof-read once. You know, basically a replacement for me doing those tasks.

    I am the psychotherapist. Please, describe your problems. Each time
    you are finished talking, type RET twice.

    Hey, Doctor. I feel like a pair of curtains.

    Why do you say you might want to have this pair curtains?

    No, you misunderstand, I don't feel like I want a pair of curtains. I
    feel like I am a pair of curtains.

    What makes you believe that?

    Because I have tassles and a drawstring.

    Is it because you have tassles and a drawstring that you came to me?

    Yes. Aren't you going to tell me to "Pull myself together?".

    Earlier you said you would like to have this pair curtains?

    No I didn't, but if you're offering I'll have them.

    Does it bother you that if I am offering you will have them?

    No I'm grateful.
    Sometimes it can be amusing, but it mostly it just degenerates into nonsense.

    Even more so if you stop answering, and just keep hitting Enter twice, so that it's talking to itself. After a few of the usual questions/responses, I got this:

    Possibly this is related to problems at school that I say I do not understand
    you could ask the same thing yourself is it because of any hobbies I have that I
    am going through all this perhaps I could allow you to do the questioning how do
    me reconcile hangups I have you have asked yourself that question many times is
    it because question many times that I came to you?
