How to make Macbook screen go black when I want to…

    Help! I know this sounds like an odd question but is there a way to make it so I can work on my Macbook Pro with the screen being blacked out?  I’m writing a first draft of a novel and need to be able to write it on my laptop WITHOUT being able to see what I’m typing.  Also, would need to know how to make it so I can be able to see the screen again once I’ve blacked it out (of course).

    Could simply dropping the brightness down to nothing solve this for you?

    When you find a big kettle of crazy, it’s best not to stir it.

    As it turns out, my friend just now suggested to me to change my font color to white. I KNOW: SO obvious, right? I feel stupid for not figuring that out on my own. 

    But dimming the screen could work too.

    Thanks for your time!!
