I was trying to see if your file system was mounted read only. You are
probably using systemd which really fouls up some simple commands.
Try `mount|grep -v cgroup`
Also, as Henry pointed out, try removing directories from the output file:
read -p "What's your name" fname
echo -e "You typed in $fname" > test.txt
