party white.png

Can you believe it? That is a long time of writing every day. And some of you have been writing a 5-minute freewrite every single day. I know for sure that @improv has - and that is pretty impressive!!!

No matter when you joined - even if you only find out about this freewriting thing today - it is time to party!

We thought up a very special contest for you that only the super special people called freewriters can participate in!

What is it? You say. Let's begin. Open the doors. We are ready!

Are you ready for this?

Announcing the Freewrite Selfie Contest

Yes, you read right!! We are going to host a Freewrite House Freewrite Selfie Contest.

You all know that we always have to put an extra special twist on everything, right?

Last year, @papa-pepper hosted a selfie contest which was a lot of fun!!

Now, we aren't a papa-pepper over here and the prize pool might not grow to the incredible sum it did in that contest - but one never knows, right?

party.png

Here is How it Works.

  • You have one week from today to enter the contest.
  • Starting on Monday 5/14/2018 (PDT), you post a qualifying selfie under the contest post in the Freewrite House.
  • There will be a new post every day and you have 24 hours to enter to avoid elimination.
  • The last freewriter standing will win the prize (or if there is no winner after 50 days, the prize will be split evenly among all remaining players- whichever comes first).

party.png

How do I enter?

To enter the contest, you have to post a selfie of you holding something with your username on it. Your username must be clearly readable. Here is an example.

IMG_0415.jpg

But I don't like to show my face!!!

No problem. You can enter like this.

IMG_0418.jpg

You can have a paper bag over your head, be Darth​ Vader, cat woman or whoever you want to be. But if you enter as an alter ego, all your selfies need to be done that way.

We will comment and confirm that you are entered.

Important!!! Only people registering like this can play!!! No entries accepted after Sunday 5/13/2018 evening PDT.

party white.png

Qualifying Selfies

This is the Freewrite Selfie Contest. Yes, you guessed it - the selfie is related to the freewrite.

Every day, you post a Selfie which has the theme of that day's prompt represented in it.

Let me explain.

Let's say the prompt is tree. For your selfie to qualify, it has to have one of the following:

  • a tree in the picture with you. I.e. my selfie above would qualify.
  • a drawing of a tree and you
  • an art piece representing a tree and you
  • any other means of your interpretation of tree.
  • if we are having a very abstract prompt, even the word written on a paper will do.

Be creative!

The selfie must be in the comments within 24 hours of the posting of the Freewrite House Contest Post (which will go up after the Daily Prompt post). You also must include the link to your freewrite with your selfie.

party white.png

Elimination Process

If you fail to post your selfie and the link to your freewrite in the 24-hour period, you will be eliminated.
Or if your selfie does not represent the prompt.
The eliminated players will be listed in next day's post.

But don't fret - there are prizes for eliminated players too.

If you have any questions, please ask!!

party white.png

The Prizes

Finally, you say!! Let's get to the good stuff!!

Beginning pot: $ 10 SBD ~ over $ 30 USD at today's value.

Every day, half of the SBD payout of the post will be added to the prize!

We gladly accept donations to make the prize bigger!!

All eliminated players will be entered into SBI membership drawings.

We will hold a drawing every 10 days until the contest is over. If we get Steem donations, we might hold drawings more frequently. If you win, your name will be removed from the list to give others a chance.

party white.png

The Daily Prompt

If you are not familiar with the Daily 5-minute Freewrite - here is what you need to do.

Go to @mariannewest profile and look for the blue graphics which looks like this.

Imgur

The prompt has instructions on what to do. If you have questions, ask, after you read the introduction post as well.

party white.png

How to Post a Picture in a Comment

I found that sometimes, I can upload a picture directly to the comments - and sometimes, that doesn't seem to work. There are sites like Imgur which allow you to host pictures and share from there.
They also allow you to shrink the picture like I did with the prompt picture above.
For Steemit, you choose the Markdown link and you will have to add a ! before the link to work properly.
There are other ways to do this, ask in the comments and I am sure someone has much better ideas than we do.

party white.png

Recap of what to do.

  • Enter the contest by posting a selfie with your username under this post.
  • Write your daily freewrite.
  • Take a selfie with the prompt represented.
  • Post the selfie and the link to your freewrite under that day's contest post at the Freewrite House (here)
  • Post every day to win the pot!!

Even though I have put a few pics up, I'm still camera shy.

No problem. By the end of this challenge you are going to be a selfie queen lol

Lol, we shall see :) but I plan on making it all the way :p

The party has started! Day one is here. Remember to post your selfie and the link to the Freewrite in the comments!!

I need to figure out how to add comments from my phone loll

U5dtLLWRfrCNKXwvDviNZDPfc9owrQJ_1680x8400.jpg

this is a great photo of you!!! Love it!!

I had to make a comment on your picture! The flair made me do it! Thanks for putting a beautiful face to the name I'm starting to see more and more of as I travel around the discord multiverse.

Thank you :D

Great picture! I use http://postimages.org, load the pic you want, then scroll a little and click the second option...hold on.....I'll take a screen shot....

Then you just paste it in the comments!

I use it on my desktop, but was thinking "I don't want to save extra things to my phone" not realizing that the pic is ALREADY on my phone.... thanks for posting this so I don't think I have to get to my pc for each pic haha

Haha you're welcome!

You are gorgeous!

😂 😁 I can see a tape rule at the table,
Impressive.

You rock!!! No reminder needed for you!!! LOL

Between the sun, the wind and my cat, I think this is the best I'm going to get! lol Hope this selfie will qualify!

20180507_124512.jpg

THIS IS GREAT!! YOU ARE IN! didn't mean to shout - but am too lazy to retype​ lol

Ok, I was going to show special preference to @eaglespirit but I had to say something as I am a sucker for photos that incorporate the sun and it's beautiful rays like you did here! Great smile, by the way, it really "sealed" the deal for me to engage on your picture comment!

lol!!! you are so sweet!

sweeter than the sweetest candy
sweeter than the sweetest cake
sweeter than the sweetest pie

you are so sweet! 😗

@dynamicgreentk

Thank you!

you are welcome! :)

Thank you! Taking a good selfie can take me all day sometimes!!! I forgot I need to have the sun behind the camera..... It did wind up being pretty cool though :D

😺

Love this picture 😊

Happy 200 to everybody!
IMG_20180508_035930.jpg

Because you are excited!!!! so glad you are going to play!!!
You are in!!

And if time is short for you and you want to do your freewrite in Italian only - that is totally okay...

Well, my only possibility is to do a "one line freewrite" directly in English. I don't like the idea to write in Italian, since there are very few Italians between my readers

Lol look at you.. I can blackmail you forever for this, im sure you didn't think I could have reached the post hihihi (you may start by offering me the coffe tomorrow morning) 🤣😜

You can't blackmail me if I've no shame!

I know.. unfortunately I can't.. in fact, who offered it? 😂😛

Oh wow, the only thing more beautiful in this picture than you is the scenic backdrop! The sound of the river rushing through the rocks must provide nice soothing sounds as you stroll around the river bank right there. Oh and you know I couldn't leave without saying thank you for adding flair to your name there!🌹🌹

Excellent - we can't get lost !! LOL

did your smile break? :D

I was trying to concentrate on holding the camera in one hand and the name card in the other, I kept trying to snap the photo with the wrong hand. Don't worry, when I'm looking at everyone else's selfie I'm smiling, or more like LOL on some of them (felt.buzz, byn, improv). 😮

I'm going to try my best, but this is how I've been feeling lately...

Selfie-01.png

I hear you!! Maybe we try to have a lot of angry prompts so it will be easy for you lol

:) Maybe I just meant I was really hungry!

A variety of whacky prompts would be good! Get my mind off of real life stuff. That's what writing is good for... of course I also really enjoy the therapeutic freewrites as well. Anything is good!

Adorable selfie, @byn! I'm right there with you. I hope your son is doing better!

Love the colors in your name!!!

the stacks of books at the background attest to your awesome writing skills, thumps up.
Love it.

I want in... just not that crazy about selfie's though.... so since I can have an alter-ego (Honestly I think I am going to regret this...haha)... here she is. Hope this qualifies

CoNGRaTuLaTioNS!!! On the 200th Day.... Like Wow !!! 😊

Oh I love that mask!!!!! You look beautiful!

Thank you @simgirl
Can’t wait to party with you 🎉

Love your alter ego!!!

You are in!!

Whooohoooo!! Party time!🎉

wow!!! this is super cool!

Haha thanks @elizacheng
Let’s party 50 days together 🎉

Aren't we already partying everyday? That's what we do here, right? 😉😘

Woweeee so chantekkkk your mask!! 😍😍😍

It is right? The funny story behind this mask is, when I went to Venice many people told me the masks from Venice, could be bought at a fraction of the price if I looked for the ones made in China. What??!!
So when I chose the mask, it was more for the label than the mask itself.... hmmmm what a hefty price for a label eh....
Bu it's worked out great now that I am using it for the FreeWrite..
Are you joining the 200 Day Party? Come... It will be fun 😊
IMG_2785 (1).jpg

Wow, so interesting! Hahaha, worth for keeps! 😉 Yea, I plan to participate but yet to decide whether I wanna use my face or an alter ego, LOL 😂

I personally cinsider this the best of all selfie.

Alter ego - high
Picture quality - high
Creativity - high.

It reminds me of the movie :The Phantom of the Opera.

@botefarm - we need your selfie registration so you can be part of the contest!!

Believe me I've tried harder than I could to do it, every posture of mine gets disapproved by me, isn't that crazy?

Not forgetting that the selfie has to be in line with the the prompt, this is weekend, how do I do a selfie withyhree prompt.

Am about to go nut for this.

You are funny. You know that we are making it easy on you guys. And you can wear a mask or a bag over your head if you don't like your picture :)

A rose by any other name is still a rose.

20180510_173136.jpg

Yes!!!! What a great picture!!!

Thank you! My brain is so boiled that I didn't even notice that I had to post a selfie to enter! I stayed home today with the postdrome from yesterday's migraine. I pretty much layed about most of the day, so I had to slap a little bit of color on my face before I took this lol

You poor thing. I just wished we could have a magic wand to make the migraine go away ....

Thank you, I appreciate the empathy. I'm not a good invalid lol, I get so angry that I'm limited (can we say complete stop?) because there is so much I hope to do!

Not sure why this vote went to 2... I'll hit you again.

no problem. I'll top it off :)

This is my favorite photo yet!

Thank you, you're so sweet!

I will take and post my selfie when I get home! Quick question, though--do we have to post our selfie in the body of our freewrite as well? My face is visible in a few places on here but I feel oddly self indulgent posting my selfies on my own page every day, though I'm not necessarily opposed to doing it in comments... maybe it's due to a slight aversion toward Instagram-like social media.

No, it does not have to be in your freewrite. There will be a post here at the freewrite house every day to drop the selfie together with a link to the freewrite. I would still drop a link to the freewrite at the daily prompt as well since not everyone is going to play - more eyes on are always good...

We need your selfie!! You don't want to miss the contest!! It will be fun!!

I really wanted to enter but I was thinking about it and realistically I already have such a hard time getting myself to write every day particularly with freewrites. I’d probably last like, 2-3 days tops, and that’s me being optimistic about myself. I think I should stick with doing the occasional freewrite for now and save the big competition for when I’ve had some more practice.

You still have a day to change your mind. You are going to be in a drawing for SBI just for entering. and we need people to drop off or there will be no winner 😜
all good.

Okay okay, you've convinced me. I will enter. Maybe I'll surprise myself. Making a new parent thread for it :)

This squirrel is ready to party! (Are there snacks?)

Yay Brisby!!!! The party squirrel has arrived!!!

Your squirrel makes me smile every time I look at it :)

If I'd seen this yesterday morning, I could've selfied with the post-party housewreck that I cleaned up yesterday! Instead, I'll just go with confetti by way of Mr. Sketch markers. Any day with fruit-scented confetti is a party day.

So glad that you are joining in!! It will be fun!!

You won't be mad if I tell you I took a bit longer than 5 minutes today, right? It is a celebration party after all, no? :3

For real though, congratulations on (y)our anniversary! Time flies by so quick! :O I can't believe I've already written more than 100 freewrites, and that Wild West had been dragging along for, what, likely also 100 prompts now?.. I need to check.

Thank you very much for what you do. Your work has helped me tremendously and without you I wouldn't have had so much of the story written, no sir Ma'am!

I won't say anything like "to at least that many more", because I will probably need 2-3 years more to finish this ongoing project - Wild West. I believe that with your help I can fulfill my personal goal of writing my own book. So don't you dare stop at 400!

Thank you again.
For everything. <3

Oh, and, as for the selfie, I'll try and pull one off on thursday when there's a huge party for students in our capital city... I think it's time to wear my Steemit @svashta shirt again. :P Doesn't matter if I'm too late for whatever contest - it's all for great fun ^^

https://steemit.com/freewrite/@svashta/wild-west-chapter-7-part-5-5-minute-freewrite-challenge

You have until next Monday to enter the contest. So, ​a selfie with steemit shirt is what we are looking for on Friday?

Oh right, a selfie! It says @svashta on the back, so that won't work.... I'll figure out something 'til monday then :P

Just take the selfie in the mirror!!! Can't wait to see it!

Sheesh, fine! So original. :P

My arms not long enough to get my girth...

My blue eyes are failing me. I can't even open my eyes fully when I smile out here... 🤔🙁.
200 days of this? I don't think I've been on Steemit that long! Sorry for "negative" comments here as I was bummed taking my selfie. This contest is simple and fun!

Don't worry. The cut-off for the contest is 50 days in. That is all I am willing to commit to lol
That is one drawback of living in a sunny place - hard to see lol
You are in :)
