Timeworks Word Writer is a word processing utility for computers including the Commodore 64 and 128. This software was originally developed in the early/middle 1980's. The developing was started in 1983 and there have been several upgrades since then (up to version 6 in 1991).

In the last versions have build-in interfaces to Timeworks SwiftCalc spreadsheet and the Timeworks Data Manager desktop database. This three programs also called the Timeworks Office.

This program runs in 40 column mode on the Commodore 64 (80 column mode for the 128). To achieve the necessary space for editing documents, the program scrolls the screen. This is kind of cumbersome (especially to today's standards). However, scrolling was a smart invention used to overcome the 40 column limitation.
