Frequently Asked Questions


I’ve never tried forward drafting. Why should I use Sprinter?

Forward drafting is a fantastic way to overcome that internal editor in your head and finally find writing flow. Sprinter is designed for writers who have never tried the forward-drafting method before. So give it a try and see what new stories (and productivity levels) you discover! Spoiler alert: Prepare to be blown away by your word count.

Where does Sprinter sync drafts?

When you first use Sprinter, you will be prompted to save your work to Postbox, our free cloud service. You will be walked through the steps to create an account. After that, all your Sprinter drafts will save to Folder A in your Postbox account.

I already own a Freewrite, what good is Sprinter?

Freewrite users love Sprinter because it uses the same infrastructure as Freewrite devices. All your work will save to the same Postbox account. Don't have your Freewrite with you when inspiration hits? No problem. Open Sprinter and you're good to go.

Drafting in a browser? Talk about distractions!

It's true — if you're anywhere near a browser, the temptation to do anything but write is high. If you're online you might as well check your Facebook and TikTok, right? Keep that up, though, and you'll never get anything written.

The Sprinter interface was developed to encourage goal setting, creative thinking, and improved writer output. It's true that Sprinter can't force you to keep your mind on your work. What the Sprinter online typewriter can do, though, is reduce distractions and help your forward-drafting momentum.

Is Sprinter really free?

Yes! Sprinter is completely free to use. We want as many people as possible to be able to experience distraction-free drafting.
