Such a Surprise

Really didn’t understand the whole concept…
now I can’t stop writing. Really enjoying the whole idea, and the Hemingway is beautiful!!

Marissa Harrison (Lake Stevens, US)
Creativity’s Best Writing Tool

I am in love with this thing. Here’s why:

1. It’s pretty. And looking at pretty things helps give me ideas for writing.

2. It’s comfortable to type on. I’ve tried other versions of the distraction free method, but the Freewrite takes the cake because of the bigger screen and substantial keyboard and body. I need to be able to see at least a paragraph of what I’ve written otherwise I start to lose track of the point I was trying to make (I have the same issue when I’m talking too).

3. I love that I can email what I write to myself at the press of a button. When I’m ready I can just grab the doc and paste it into my manuscript in progress. Awesome.

4. I knew that my tendency to perseverate, over analyze and think myself right out of my ideas was getting in my way, and keeping me from looking forward to my writing sessions (unless I already knew what I wanted to write about. Then it’s game on). The Freewrite takes all the pressure off of that need to focus, because when you sit down in front of this thing the only options you have are to write, daydream or admire how pretty it is. I just finished a book the other day after agonizing over what my last scenes should or shouldn’t be because when I committed to just sitting down in front of this gorgeous machine the words just came out.

I’m so excited to discover what comes next in my stories on my Freewrite. Because this typewriter reminded me that the most exciting part of writing is when you don’t know what happens next.

Just What I Wanted

I’ve always used a second computer or laptop for my writing but I’ve been without one for a few years now. And trying to type on my iPad has been a disappointment. The keyboard was shallow and don’t get me started on the distractions.

This was exactly what I was looking for. I went for the Hemingway (even though it was the most expensive) because for the same price I could get a laptop with an another shallow keyboard, short battery life, and basic screen. But THIS! The keyboard is the best I’ve used in a long time and I LOVE the e-ink display. The battery life is, of course, incredible. But the best part is the lack of any other capability. In our modern world where technology pushes devices to be an all-in-one solution, it’s nice to see a device come out that just done one thing perfectly. Typing. That’s all I want it for, and that’s exactly what it does. So satisfying. Couldn’t recommend it more to professional writers or someone who’s looking to start taking their writing seriously.

This is what I knew would help

The hemingway edition freewrite was all they said and more. It is beautiful, and quickly became one of my most prized posessions. I'm somewhat of a luddite, and do not take quickly nor kindly to computers nor word programmes.. This machine is exactly what I wanted...a typewriter with no paper, no ink, no hassles, just a perfect tool to let go and get what I want done. The synch is perfect, and seeing my words in the cloud storages almost instantaneously as writ make me feel like a literary rock star. I look forward to my sessions with it, and have never felt such freedom as I do with it. My videogame machine is a veritable paperweight now, and I feel an indescribable joy as I create what I've always wanted, but put off for literally years. No handaches, no computer headaches, just the supple feel of the keys and the feeling they give of finality. I always wanted to emulate and emote what the writers of past had done using a typewriter, and this machine has given me that which I sought, in full. The service at Astrohaus was impeccable, their patience boundless and professional, and I can wholeheartedly recommend their product, and them. The price was well worth the results. I sit on my couch and type on my machine propped on a plastic walmart chair and am supremely content. I will recommend it to anyone and everyone.
