A Walled Garden For Focus

Chapter 1

Weapons Of Mass Distraction Are Real

Writers need a way to stay focused. If it feels impossible, go easy on yourself. It's not just you.

The Beauty of Single-Function Design

Chapter 2

Don’t Compromise

Software apps are okay, but the temptation is still there. Old typewriters are focusing but slow and clunky. Writers shouldn't have to choose between simple and digital.

Unstoppable Flow Of Words

Chapter 3

Let The Words Flow

Freewrite is the best of both worlds. The result is writing flow. Or more like an overflow - our community reports 2-3x more words per hour. In other words, hit your writing goals twice as fast.

“Astrohaus' Freewrite E Ink typewriter was designed to combat these distractions by removing the internet from your view entirely, though you could still save your files digitally. This spring the company will ship the Freewrite Traveler, a lighter clamshell model that lets writers easily take their craft wherever the mood strikes them.”

“I’d bang out words on the device, then return to the computer to find a draft already waiting, as though it had been filed by someone else for my disinterested consideration. The aluminum body and spring-loaded keys made each word feel weighty and propulsive—an antidote to writing on glass.”

“It's custom-built for writing. There's no internet research to get lost in. No email to distract you. You open the piano-black lid and start typing. Once the Traveler has access to WiFi, it sends those words to the cloud service of your choice (Dropbox, Google, or Evernote) so that you can turn that offline productivity into a finished product.

“Getting a Freewrite was the best purchase because I finally wrote a novel. Within the first 90 days of having it.”

JP Gordon

“I am having such fun traveling with my Traveler! I have my “stay at home” Freewriter which is such a beautiful piece of art…and my little guy who gets to travel with me. I’m so happy…thank you for designing something I didn’t know I SO needed!”

Judith R.

“I have a 12 day writing streak, I carry the damn thing everywhere, I named and labeled it, I gave it a special pillow to keep next to me at night if I wake up with thoughts.”

Melinda W.

“What a beautiful device! I’ve started my novel on this device as I use my traveler for songwriting and another book I’m writing. I love how easy it is to keep track of everything and transfer documents through post box for either device.”

Emily A

“The traveler is such a nice size to write anywhere comfortably and has a great amount of storage! I’ve been getting such large portions of writing done on this and I think one of the really helpful things is that not only does it keep writing distraction free with no scrolling but I can hide word count a little easier and I don’t have to stare at a massive blank page when trying to write- I only see a small window and it helps keep me from spiraling!”

Taylor S

“I got it because I figured it would be easier on my eyes than a laptop screen, and it absolutely is. I like that it feels pretty sturdy, without being heavy. The files are synced to my Google drive, which is great for my peace of mind, since I know it's all backed up. I would unequivocally recommend this device.”

Laura R

“I love love love my Freewrite. It is perfect for me in every. single. way. Y'all couldn't have done a better job with the design and functionality! Price is high but absolutely and totally worth every penny! Thank you so much for sharing this invention with folks like me:)”

Lindsay C.

“I’ve been pouring words into my Traveler for the past week and loving what’s being produced. I’ve wanted to buy a Freewrite device for multiple years now and finally went for it. If you’re in the same boat, don’t hesitate! Love the keyboard feel, love the simple, sleek design.”

Lauren B.

“For once I’m regularly keeping a journal and I’m finally back to writing overall. It’s fantastic.”

You still have to write. And writing sprints are a great motivator for many to get through some of those tough periods.

In the world of writing and creativity, the concepts of freewriting and the messy first draft have gained significant traction. Embraced by seasoned authors, aspiring writers, and creative thinkers alike, these methods embody the idea that the initial stages of creation should be totally free, messy, unstructured, and devoid of perfection.

But what does science and psychology have to say about it?
