How Big Should the Writing Area Be at Startup?

big-space

I’m toying with the write amount of space and size for the application when you boot up. I wasn’t happy with the small space and the current testers didn’t like how it was too small to begin with.

So, I increased it a tad and then I have it scale length-wise to the right and then down and then upward as the person types.

For context, here’s a look at what it looks like on the full desktop space:

Thoughts?

What do you think about the initial size of the application window when you start it up? Should it be larger? Should it always be the same? Do you think we should include some growth animation?
