comment Emulate Typewriter Scrolling in Vim
Ok, for the record, it seems to work only when you've reached the bottom (and not the middle). Once you've reached the bottom (you have enough lines to fill the whole visible space), then if you edit a line in the middle and add more line then it will do the typewriter scrolling. I'll see what I can do.

Ok, I should probably give it one more go before fiddling with scripting I guess. Thank you again!

The behaviour I would like is the following: Write normally until you hit the middle, and from the middle no being able to move the cursor down (every line skip will put the cursor on the same line (middle of the screen)). Do you think it's scriptable? If so, any ressources to point to? Anyway, cheers for following the answer :)

comment Emulate Typewriter Scrolling in Vim
Ok, I reset everything and just add the scrolloff and the nocompatible mode in the .vimrc and it seems to work although it doesn't reproduce the feature in WriteRoom fully. The problem now is that it does write everything on the same line, but this line is not always in the middle of the screen. This behaviour is somewhat more flexible but is there any way to force the cursor at the middle of the screen now? Thank you very much for answering!

The difference is that the last line I am talking about is in fact in the middle of the screen so you never have to scroll or look down. You stare at the same line all the time while writing. Although you're right, if you reduce the window to half the size and write on last visible line, then you'd be able to reproduce the behaviour. It's just not exactly what I was looking for.
