Chapter 1

Compose Your Own Adventure

"Hemingwrite" captures the vibrant spirit of its namesake and serves as a timeless companion for the most daring of writing adventures

An explorer at heart, Hemingway lived a rich, legendary life. He won a medal for his bravery in WWI, was adopted into the “Lost Generation” writers’ circle in Paris, ran with the bulls in Spain, and caught giant marlins off the coast of Cuba.

Beyond his worldly travels, Hemingway whet his appetite for adventure through the written word. On the Hemingwrite, the only limit to your exploration is your imagination.

Chapter 2

Embrace writing simply

When he needed distance from the demands of daily life, Hemingway famously spent his days writing in charming Parisian cafes.

Now, there’s no need to travel to Paris to create a distraction-free atmosphere. Hemingwrite is designed to help you focus, so you can enter writing flow wherever you go.

Hemingway wrote directly and concisely. His perceptive style became known as the “iceberg theory,” influencing subsequent generations of writers. The principle of minimalism is at the very core of Hemingwrite. Its clean aesthetic, minimalist features, and singular purpose as a drafting tool will help you do what you do best: just write.

Chapter 3

Write truly and prolifically

Hemingway became a decorated writer by constantly challenging himself to write more. When not hunting German U-Boats in the Caribbean or exploring Parisian streets, Hemingway dedicated himself to long drafting sessions that eventually produced classics of American literature.

To conquer the blank page, Hemingway advised writers to first “write the truest sentence that you know.” From that first sentence, the Hemingwrite encourages you to embrace authenticity by focusing on productivity over perfection – let your story emerge.

A Helpful (and Beautiful) Tool

Do you need a Freewrite to write effectively? No. Does it help? For me, absolutely. The limited layout forces me to write (and keep writing) without endlessly editing. When I use the Freewrite, I judge my own writing less because the whole point is just to give myself material to work with later. (I otherwise tend to throw out drafts because they're not perfect.) Plus there's the cool factor--it feels great to type on it, and that adds a little bit of fun to the writing process. If you love to write, I highly recommend the Freewrite!

Best writing tool ever!!!

It Seems Unreasonable Until It Isn't

I stewed over making this purchase for about a year. I looked into alternatives, I told myself that I could just put my laptop in airplane mode and it would be the same, but the Hemingwrite haunted me. I celebrated graduating university summa cum laude and receiving an incredible job offer by finally taking the plunge and buying the Hemingwrite and now, I can't stay away. It's gorgeous, works incredibly well, and makes me want to always be writing. I feel more motivated and can't stop talking about my typewriter to those who are curious. I love the look and feel and the case. It's a hefty purchase and you should take the time to think it over, but it's definitely worth it.

Beautifully Made - Wonderful Keyboard and Display and Case

I am very happy with my purchase. This is everything I wanted. Beautiful durable metal housing, fantastic keyboard. A nice leather case. Also the ability to be offline, and to connect to my iMac and save my work onto my computer. A great device to concentrate on only my writing without any other distractions.
