The Ernest Hemingway Freewrite Signature Edition, a.k.a. "Hemingwrite," pays homage to the most iconic literary personality of the last century. The Hemingwrite is an officially licensed collaboration with the Ernest Hemingway estate.
No regrets and a bright writing journey ahead! This Ernest Hemingway Freewrite Signature Edition is everything described on the website and is excellent for character building. The keys are comfortable, and the interface is intuitive. The design is seductively nostalgic, helping me enter a "writer's Zen" state of mind. Love it!

Everything I expected and more
Before I got my Hemingwrite, I would struggle to get 2,500 words a week. After having my Hemingwrite for only a week, I had written well over 6,000 words on it. It is extremely conducive to a focused work environment, it’s gorgeous to look at, and it’s an absolute joy to use. I find myself writing every single day now, and on weekends I’ll have multiple writing sessions in one day. If you’re on the fence because of the price, just finance it through Affirm and get it. It’s worth it.

Awesome writing tool
I love the style of this freewrite. It is so helpful to have a dedicated writing machine to use to help keep focused. Highly recommend.

An investment in writing momentum.
This was the needed evolution in writing I didn't know I needed. As a novelist, the first four books I wrote I did the first draft longhand with a fountain pen. It pained me to cross anything out on the page so I just kept moving forward without any edits. The fourth book was picked up for publication, but life got busier and transcribing my own handwriting into the second draft was a big pain and took forever.
Then I moved on to a typewriter so I could do an OCRM scan with my phone. Better, but the writing process was clunky and I had to learn the art of typewriter maintenance to keep the words flowing at a couple points in the process.
I had been eyeing the Freewrite for months, not sure if I should commit. After saving up for a while, I went for it, and I don't regret it. I write daily on it. If it's not fiction, it's a gratitude journal or notes that I want to have some focus on and then just send the work to myself via email.
My kids got into it too and it became a battle of who got to spend their time on the machine, so I wound up getting a second and last week my second oldest wrote 9.5k words in a week (she's 7, so I want to do whatever I can to fan the flames of creativity). I'm about 6 months into owning it and am still thoroughly enjoying it more than the cheap laptop I had bought for writing last year and the cheap screen and keyboard just weren't cutting it.

It's the ritual, stupid...
Pardon the Carville, it really is the ritual. The quality of the materials is apparent with every finger-tip skip across the keys, and operating the handsome case is a delight. Handling this gorgeous machine mirrors the preparation given to a favorite cigar on an inspired evening brimming with ideas. I could not be more pleased.
