An ideal tool for the first draft

For many years I was looking for a typewriter with a 'kindle screen'. I wanted to write comfortably and without distraction. I bought Freewrite with some hesitation, with the producers' promise to add Lithuanian keyboard. I got my Freewrite a month ago. I'm more than satisfied. Easy to write, simple to operate, no unnecessary features. I have written and published three books, and Freewrite is an ideal tool for the first draft.

P.S. I'm still waiting for the Lithuanian language :)

Mein Schreibprozess hat sich verdreifacht! Kein Witz!

Ich benötige im Durchschnitt 4-5 Stunden für eine Normseite pro Tag. Das liegt daran, dass ich immer wieder zurückgehe und überarbeite, bis mir jeder einzelne Satz gefällt. Doch mit dem Freewrite bin ich gezwungen nach „vorne“ zu schreiben, um den ersten Entwurf fertigzustellen. So schreibe ich jetzt sogar 4-5 Seiten am Vormittag, die ich am Nachmittag überarbeite. Ich bin so dankbar. Aktuell schreibe ich noch mit der QWERTY-Tastatur auf deutscher Belegung, das geht eigentlich im Freiflug gut, da man blind weiß, wo die Tasten sind (erkennt man aber auch bei langem Drücken der Spacetaste), aber ich habe die GERMAN Keycaps schon bestellt. Dann wird es wahrscheinlich noch besser. Also, das perfekte Schreibtool für alle Autor*innen!

Great Product for Writing

I love my Freewrite 2nd Gen. It is amazing to write on. For the price, I expect that it would sync my drafts to postbox flawlessly, but there have been some instances where a reboot was required to get it to synch.

I hope that Astrohaus continues to release updates to make the device very stable and dependable.

Excellent tool, I have increased productivity, and joy of writing. Now freewriting anytime , anywhere anything I want. Love it.

Happy and want to stay that way

Spending time with the Freewrite is just as I had hoped. A pleasure, never to be interrupted, seemed to form almost immediately. Emails from Freewrite were helpful and pleasant. One in particular, warranty can be extended, came to mind and I acted to do so. This action spurred on by the now known and desirable feeling of writing on the Freewrite. Ah…….disappointment soon washed over my face, when my email asking for help to procure such protection of my new found bliss, died at the hands of a Freewrite representative.
The reason and the bullet that killed my faith in the company had now been delivered. The gunpowder used was “that has to be done in the first 14 days “ she said.
Now ends my heartfelt submission of the classic drop in the story line. Will I rise again aided by a Freewrite Calvary or not.
Time….. my new found nemesis…..will tell.
