Fast Company – “When I started working on this story, my laptop screen consisted of nothing but empty white space—a blank canvas on which to tune out distractions and write.

I first discovered Typora five years ago and have used it to write more than a thousand articles and newsletters since then. Typora is the product of a developer in Shanghai who goes by “Abner”—he has a day job as a software programmer and is uncomfortable publishing his name—and after seven years of development, the app has just launched out of beta. You can try it free for 14 days without any payment information, but for me it’s easily worth the $15 one-time purchase price. At this point, it’s hard for me to imagine writing with anything else…”
