Draft now, edit later. Traveler is our most portable distraction-free writing tool.
A place just for writing, wherever you go. Turn off distractions. Focus your thoughts. Enter flow state.
It’s not exactly what I imagined, but it’s growing on me. For some reason I’m unable to connect to my home wifi, and you don’t offer my language in keyboard selection ( which is Croatian). The lag on screen when I type was a bitt off putting, but I got used to it. Overall, I think it’s overpriced for what it actually does, but I will put it to good use.
Not gonna lie, I was kicking myself in the butt for spending so much money on my freewrite traveler. So far its been great to have though and my productivity has gone way up. I was pretty much not writing at all before I got this thing, frozen by my internal editor. The freewrite traveler somehow makes that go away though once you get going. My goal is to just write my story as I see it, worry about editing later. I just want words to fill that little screen. I love how your word count is displayed on the bottom screen, it really makes me feel like I am making progress just watching that number go up.
If you have a hard time getting yourself to write and you have the funds, get the freewrite. Traveler or the original, doesn't matter. It will help.
Using the traveler for the last week has been enlightening. I didn’t realize how much stuff I let myself do that wasn’t writing: researching, making notes about plot points and character traits, making plot decisions and going back and changing them over and over. On the freewrite, I just write and I do it without worrying about things that I should have included 2 pages ago; I just make a note for later and continue on. In a week I’ve written 12,000 words without the normal amount of suffering and waffling I would normally do. I did not expect the traveler to make as much of a difference as it did, but I am thankful I finally pulled the trigger.
I think it's excellent! Easy to take wherever I want, and I can sit down and write anything. It doesn't have to be necessary, and it doesn't have to be perfect! There are no red underlines or suggestions to make you feel you need to edit while you're "brain dumping" a draft. It certainly makes you think less about the words and think more about what you're trying to put down.
Syncing the documents to my google drive is easy! The only problem I've been having so far is I'm not entirely sure how to update it the way it says on the website, and every time it resets, all of my documents are gone from my Freewrite traveler, but they're still on my google, so I still have them!
It took me a few years to gain the courage to buy this, I always thought it was costly, but I finally bit the bullet and got it. And I am delighted with it and don't regret it!
I love it, though!
