FocusWriter is a lightweight, full-screen, distraction-free rich feature word processor, it is cross-platform available for Linux, MS Windows, and Mac. This program is translated into many different languages. It utilizes a hide-away interface that you access by moving your mouse to the edges of the screen, allowing the program to have a familiar look and feel to it while still getting out of the way so that you can immerse yourself in your work.

FocusWriter allows you to skin your environment by creating themes that control the font, colors, and background image to add ambiance. It also features on-the-fly updating statistics, daily goals, multiple open documents, spell-checking, and much more.
Additionally, when you open the program your current work in progress will automatically load and position you where you last left off so that you can immediately jump back in.
You can set writing goals, and enjoy features not usually found in similar writing applications like spell checking and tabbed documents. FocusWriter offers features usually absent from focus-centered writing tools like spellcheck, tabbed documents, real-time stats on your work (character, word, paragraph, and page count), as well as daily goals based on word count or time spent writing. The interface is there when you want it and vanishes into the background when you just want to write. It does not require many system resources, it has a good response time and there are enough options to keep you busy for quite a while.
