Do you frequently have trouble resisting the siren call of social media, email, internet searches, or games when you should be writing? The Freewrite, just released earlier this month after a successful Kickstarter campaign a year and half ago, might be your answer.
I have to admit, I'm pretty tempted. I definitely have a problem with distractions when I should be writing. The idea of a device dedicated to drafting and nothing else sounds pretty good. But there are two things that make me hesitate (although they may not be a problem for someone else!).
First, the price is pretty high at $499.00. While this is a third of what my MacBook cost, it's still a hefty chunk of change for something that only has one function. More of a deal breaker for me is the lack of a cursor or touchscreen to let you navigate within your WIP. I usually do a bit of editing on the fly as I draft, so I have a feeling this would just frustrate me.
What do you think? Would you try the Freewrite?
