A Favorite Freewrite

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

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!!

The comment must be at least 50 words long - no upper limit 🤪

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.

To be entered into the drawing, go to the Daily Prompt post by @mariannewest. We are doing our best to resteem them to the Freewrite house profile.
Read as many Freewrites as you can. Then tell us about a freewrite you really liked and why.
Choose from the last couple of days if possible so others can go, visit, and, inspired by your description, leave a vote.

Win, Win, Win!!!

I have two this week from the Sunday prompt of "halcyon days":

@preparedwombat managed to get a great historical adventure tale out of this insane prompt:


All of the discordant points are here for your reading pleasure. Never has one phrase meant so many unrelated and odd things. We also get a footnote with more random facts. This post has it all!

And next up, poor @richardfyates gets this one for his very first freewrite! I hope he will be back after this, since he did such a good job with it.


Click to read a very funny story a la 1984, and then find a preface and afterward MUCH longer with all kinds of interesting tidbits of @richardfyates (halcyon) dancing days.

Good one @freewritehouse! You keep me entertained :)

I love reading Weekend FreeWrites. So many FreeWriters do a great job of making the 3 prompts fit. This round I recommend reading @stinawog's. She tackles the fear and paranoia that comes with one misstep in life. And then, suddenly everything becomes an obsession that leads to that fear. Every thing, as random as it is, chips away at what's left, little by little.


@freewritehouse Team, Kindly find below Freewrite piece which is shared by @elizacheng.


Steem Fest 4 coming to Asia in November and brought all the excitement once again and in my opinion till now we are completely not gone through from the Steem Fest 3 stories and now one more memorable event is arriving. I am really excited.

I admit I am one of these freewriters who do not know what "halcyon days" stand for. Even reading freewrites using this prompt did not enlighten me. So if you have no clue and google translate is not making you any wiser you can read what @fitinfun wrote about it.
I still need to think hard after reading her freewrite and my connection is too slow to follow all links, so if you ask me it was Shakespeare who invented the expression. What do you think?

Two prompts are used halcyon days and happy days (oder glückliche Tage).
For those who do not read German (falls Du kein English lesen kannst hast Du Glück!) this is your lucky day!
No need to translate. This freewrite is written in both languages by @mariita52. If ice cream and music help, you need to find out yourself.

Thank you! Reading my freewrite for this prompt would not be very helpful not matter what language you speak, lol :)

You are welcome ☘

I found a #freewrite from a new Freewriter @justatouchfey, today that turned out to be three poems that made me start thinking about how much power an Emperor had over their people. All three poems are thought provoking and must be read to truly understand the meanings, as I am but a mortal and cannot transcribe these words. Now go read them please. 🙏
