Growly Write : Free Word Processing for MAC
There are many advanced word processing features you won’t find in Write. This is absolutely intentional: we’ve purposely excluded things that most people won’t use every day. If you’re looking for free-floating text boxes, footnotes, built-in drawing tools, macros, equation editors, automatic indexing, or complex document sharing tools, there are commercial products available that support all these and more. Or you might want to look at our Notes product.

LyX – The Document Processor
http://www.lyx.org/
LyX – The Document Processor
LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG).
LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use of a graphical interface.
This results in world-class support for creation of mathematical content (via a fully integrated equation editor) and structured documents like academic articles, theses, and books.
LyX is released under a Free Software/Open Source license, runs on Linux/Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X, and is available in several languages.
In addition, staples of scientific authoring such as reference list and index creation come standard. But you can also use LyX to create a letter or a novel or a theatre play or film script. A broad array of ready, well-designed document layouts are built in.

crocodoc
http://crocodoc.com
Sharing and reviewing documents and presentations with others can be quite a pain. crocodoc was built to change that, alleviating the need to email attachments back and forth, print and pass around hard copies, or install expensive collaboration software.
crocodoc takes your PDFs, Word documents, and PowerPoint presentations, and lets you view and mark them up online. Documents can be shared with others, who can collaboratively highlight or strikeout text, add notes and comments, and make revisions. All files are stored securely on our servers, and can be password protected and encrypted for maximum security.
If Google Docs have been blocked in your school/country then this may be a suitable alternative for sharing documents.

5 Ways to Collaborate on Documents in Real Time

5 Ways to Collaborate on Documents Online in Real Time
"Collaborating with others online has never been easier. There are a number of options for everything from sharing images and video to presentations, tasks and more.
Here we’ll focus on collaborating on documents in real time, an area that’s improved quite a bit, but still has a way to go.
Of these five options, some services require you to create documents online while others allow you to create them off."

EtherPad : Real Time (text) Collaboration
http://etherpad.org/
EtherPad : Real Time (text) Collaboration
Other "real-time" editors like Google Docs work by broadcasting an updated copy of the document to everyone every 15 seconds. This creates a noticeable lag that gets in the way of collaboration. You start editing something, only to find 10 seconds later that someone else deleted it.
Etherpad updates every copy of the document every half second. This 30x increase in speed changes the experience completely. Your edits hardly ever clash with other users'. So you work confidently instead of tentatively.
Why doesn't Google Docs update every half second like Etherpad does? Because it's really, really hard. We're fairly experienced programmers, and to make this work we had to solve problems that, as far as we know, no one had solved before.

JDarkRoom : A simple full-screen text editor
http://www.codealchemists.com/jdarkroom/
JDarkRoom : A simple full-screen text editor
This free Windows/.Net application transforms your entire computer screen into a dark background and removes all the usual word processor toolbars and quick buttons. The only thing you’ll see is the words.
Darkroom is quite primitive because of the lack of features and in my opinion, that’s one of the reasons for its charm. You can tweak Microsoft Word and other standard processors to get the same look but I’ll rather use a simple application like this and keep the default look/feel of Word for other editorial purposes.

TextMate — The Missing Editor for Mac OS X

TextMate — The Missing Editor for Mac OS X
Whether you are a programmer or a designer, the production of code and markup is hard work. Without an editor dedicated to the task, it is also often cumbersome, overwhelming, and repetitive. Especially when you are dealing with a lot of files at once — like most projects do. TextMate puts you back in control, reduces the mental overhead, and turns manual work into something the computer does.
