Free Software for Writers Downloads

This set of freeware applications will allow you to speed up the process of writing books, research papers, or articles. Most of them work by providing you with a distraction-free writing environment (sometimes even suppressing notifications from other apps), whilst others also offer helpful tools like name generators, mind mapping, or submission wizards.
