Whether you are writing a book, blog, or essay, getting the first draft done is always the hardest part. Created by Writers for Writers, Prime Draft has been designed to help writers overcome the difficulties of the first draft. Whether you want to beat writers’ block, build a writing habit, or just write without anxiety, Prime Draft can help you get your writing project started.
Using a unique writing mode, Prime Draft helps you follow the writing process while keeping you feeling calm, focused and creative. With automatic target tracking and an accountability mode, Prime Draft can even motivate you to reach your writing goals.
Unique Writing Mode
Prime Draft takes the writing process to heart: keeping you going forward until the first draft is done and leaving the editing to when the time is right. It uses a specialized mode of writing where you only see the most recent lines of text, providing only the necessary information to write the next sentence. Once that sentence is complete, it becomes uneditable.
This unique way of writing stops you from being overly critical of your writing during the first draft and maximises productivity by stopping pre-emptive editing. Prime Draft eliminates all distractions, reduces anxiety, and just lets you put all your focus into getting to the end of your first draft!
Creative and Customizable
Research has shown that different colors can boost both creativity and focus. Prime Draft allows you to not just select the color of your font, but also the color of the screen itself. Prime Draft also provides numerous other options to customize the look of your writing, including selecting from over fifty hand-picked fonts and using subtle blurs and fades to control your focus on the screen.
Using Prime Draft’s science-backed design and your individual preferences, you can create a writing environment that keeps you feeling calm, focused and creative while you write.
Prime Draft allows you to set a goal for each file you create and automatically monitors your progress against that goal. You can target a total word count, writing time, or even set daily goals. Want to write 500 words a day for the next month? With an in-built calendar and to-do list, Prime Draft will always let you know how much progress you’ve made and what you need to do next.
Even if you don’t use targets, Prime Draft will remember how much writing you do each day, giving insight into not just how many words you have written, but also how long you have spent writing.
Prime Draft can give real accountability to your writing targets. Any target you set for a file can be enforced. This means that until you fully achieve your goal, you will not be able to export your writing out of the app. Prime Draft can convert your writing targets into real commitments, helping motivate you to sit down and write until you reach your target. But don't worry, with Prime Draft’s encrypted file format, you can still make back-ups of your writing while working towards your goal!
Prime Draft is not just about writing a better first draft, but also about building the writing habit and becoming a consistent writer.
