This plugin provides two typewriter-inspired modes for Sublime Text 2 & 3:
Typewriter Scrolling keeps the view centered on the current line, when there is more than half a screenful of text, à la iA Writer, WriteRoom and the like. This mode keeps you from craning your neck to look at the bottom of the screen for hours on end. (If you happen to write for hours on end.)
Typewriter Typing disables your cursor keys and all bindings that move the cursor and/or select text, leaving you only with letters, numbers, symbols, Backspace, Delete and Enter. Stay in the flow of writing and don't let your inner editor stifle your verbiage ever again. (Also: experience the joy of not being able to go back and correct your typos.)
This plugin is available through Package Control.
Package Control: Install Package command via the palette and choose the

- Using the mouse is very difficult in the Scrolling mode and rather counter-productive in the Typing mode. I would like to disable and/or tweak its behavior, but I haven't figured out how to do so.
- Neither mode is designed to work with multiple cursors.
- The Typing mode does not work in OSX.
