Very inspiring machine !
I just got my Freewrite and although I haven’t yet had time to write that much I can already see how writing like this gives me an amazing sense of calm and focus. There will be more Freewrite sessions in my future!
Das der Freewrite ein praktisches Gerät ist, muss ich wohl nicht erst noch sagen.
Die Ernest Hemingway Edition setz dem allem noch ordentlich einen obendrauf. Das Gerät ist das wohl schönste Schreibgerät welches ich kenne. Es ist wirklich wunderschön und der Koffer, in dem es geliefert wird, ist hochwertig und edel.
Das Schreiben auf dem Freewrite macht sowieso Spaß und ist außerdem sehr effektiv. Das Schreiben auf der Ernest Hemingway Edition macht aus dem Schreiben die Komposition einer Ouvertüre.
I've already written three novels on this beauty. I had the Traveler before but when I'm at home or have poor lighting this is my go-to. The backlit screen and just the overall feel of the keyboard is too notch. Plus this limited edition model really catches the eye. The only thing complaint that made me hesitate before diving into the Freewrite world was the slight delay between when you press the key and it appears on screen. Honestly, I got used to after my first thousand words or so and haven't looked back.
This thing is sexy.
It hadn’t occurred to me there wouldn’t be enough of a charge to use the Hemingwrite out of the box. But I started typing on it anyway, figuring I could charge it overnight and get the full experience in the morning. I wanted to see what the keys felt like under my fingertips.
It’s like mom’s IBM Selectric…
My mother owned one of the early Selectrics with the swappable type element (I still have one of the elements: the typewriter is long gone, as is her Royal). Typing on the Selectric was a fully tactile experience, just like the Hemingwrite. There’s even the same delay between keystrike and “imprint”, as I discovered the next morning after a full charge.
I guess I’m not sending this back. Or selling it on eBay.
I’ve been using my Hemingwrite for a solid day now, cranking out my newsletter and more distraction-free. A few times I put my hand on the bare aluminum case to remind myself I earned this damn thing. I plan to keep it and pass it on to some deserving soul many years from now.
There are things I’d change - a spellcheck function, for instance - but those who scoff at this tool haven’t spent enough time with one. They don’t “get” it.
I got it. And I’m glad I did.
