A Favorite Freewrite

Every Tuesday, you have a chance to win a membership to Steem Basic Income, SBI, at the Freewrite House.

We are so happy that more of you are participating and you might have noticed that we are featuring some of your comments in the digest edition. One thing which makes us a fun community to hang out with is that we do read each other's work and support each other!!

Try to win one, my friends. An everlasting vote on your posts is nothing to sneeze at.

We want to make it super easy for you. Your task is to tell us in the comment section about one - or more- freewrites of others you have read in the last couple of days you really liked. Yup, not your own!!

See the rules below for details.

In an ideal world, you also give that person a nice upvote - but we are not going to check on that.

So, to be entered into the drawing, tell us about a freewrite you really liked and why. Choose from the last couple of days so others can go, visit inspired by your description, and leave a vote.

Here are the contest rules

Win, Win, Win!!!

Steem Basic Income

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content.

Here is a free word count tool

At 5 PM Pacific time the day after the publishing of this post, we will close the contest and draw the winner through a random number generator. This will give you almost 36 hours to post your comment.

The winner will be announced and sponsored the same day.

Finding a Freewrite

If you are not familiar with the daily freewrite prompt and the many wonderful writers who produce the most amazing 5-minute (or sometimes much longer) Freewrites, go to @mariannewest and look for the prompt. The graphics look like this

In the comments, you find lots of links to all kind of freewrites.

Due to assorted circumstances, I don't believe I've participated in this part of freewritehouse since Week One. Sometimes I just get so busy, I don't take the time to read others' posts. But this weekend I made a point to read about a dozen weekend freewrites, and it was well worth the time it took! I will mention several here.


@freedomtowrite's "Stranded" just cracked me up. The characters came to life for me so quickly! I just wanted to slap Blake, but Anna got him with the bananas and saved me the trouble.


@felt.buzz's "Oddston Village" is intriguing. A whole village full of peculiar-looking people, and a cow that gets to sleep in a bed and go to the bar? You just can't go wrong with a plot like that.


@ntowl's "Dad and Daisy" is such a great first weekend freewrite! Anyone who has felt less-favored than a sibling can relate to this one. At least Dad caught on at the end. Whew!


@eroticabian's "Meant to Be" is just plain sweet and touching. Such a creative way to propose!


@byn's "One of the Family" is just too creepy, disturbing and amazing to overlook. Should I get worried about her imagination!! Ha ha!


Thanks so much for the mention @scribblingramma!


You can enter this contest too. Just recommend one freewrite with a min 50 word comment :)


2 @scribblingramma

We got you!!! Great recommendations!!


Hahaha... I think my husband starts to wonder about my imagination sometimes!!! Thank you @scribblingramma for the nomination! :)


Thank you!! I was so excited when I read this! Sorry it took me a minute to respond.


Thanks for the nomination! :)

It is so hard to really choose what I like most. It is so fun to read them all. But these two caught my attention most. The one from @whatisnew had me rapping while reading it. When nerves are on edge, these things tend to happen, so she pegged it to the tee. The one from @byn made me feel like I was the female character. Her story totally drew me in.



4 @pixiehunter

You are in!!


Woohoo :) I'm innn, I'm innnn, I'm innnnn.
Sorry, couldn't contain myself :)


You are so funny!!!


Thanks so much @pixiehunter! Good luck with the drawing. : )


Yw and good luck right back at you :)


Ok I have to admit that I went to read @eroticabian's post because of her selfie, but stayed for the story. How many times do you think a mother, leaves their child, with the wrong babysitter? Plenty...and this was just another example. Funny, probably truthfull, story, great job. Plus, I think I have that same video in my VHS collection! 😂 Butt I have no way to check! 😞


1 @wonderwop

Brunie!!!!! What are your eyes drawn to? 😂🤣


Her eyes 👀


hahaha - I told her that you will recommend all her freewrites as long as she uses this kind of selfie LOL

I'm going with this slice of life from @botefarm. It shows the power of childhood moments. I can vividly see the issue he faces with bananas. It gives me a new reason not to like them.

@botefarn has very interesting posts from his Nigerian farms and businesses and is a wonderful author. He's entering steemit contests like crazy and doing very well with them. I'm happy to find this post today.

An Offense To The Monkey King : Day 207: 5 Minute Freewrite


5 @fitinfun

We liked that one as well!! Thank you for entering!

I hope I made it in time! I want to nominate this freewrite because it is a fantastic start to a SciFi world that I want to know more about. It brings up some very interesting questions and there are so many places it could go. The descriptions are fantastic, especially for a short freewrite!



6 @eroticabian

You made it in time and I love that you recommended a fellow selfie contestant!!

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER ME IN THE DRAWING. I want to give someone else the chance to win.

Here are my favorites:
@tristancarax- Using 3 different prompts he tells a story about Vick who is keeping a secret which is eating him up. He takes us into the unconscious mind of Vick and I love the description of what Vick saw. I want to know more about the secret he is keeping and I am sure you will too. https://steemit.com/freewrite/@tristancarax/day-26-5-minute-freewrite-tuesday-prompt-paper

@marie-jay- John has committed a crime. You will be surprised what the crime was and how his fine had to be paid, all because of a "Digital Society." https://steemit.com/freewrite/@marie-jay/proof-you-ever-existed-five-minutes-freewrite


Thank you so much!! and we will listen and not enter you - even though there is a part of me that would like to know if you would win again!!! It would make a great story! I think it already is...
Here is your prompt: How to win a lot of Steem Basic Income lol


HaHa! Love the prompt you gave to me. : ) You have to play to win and add a whole lot of luck! : )


Why thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed the story enough to consider putting it up for a nomination. 🙏🏼

The beauty in this freewrite is awesome in its... realness. It reminded me of my husband and I. How differently we see each other and how others can see all of our flaws and find them beautiful.
