"Resteemed Upvoted and Tweeted" - Read, Loved, Shared - Freewriters Unite!
"Resteemed Upvoted and Tweeted"
are words authors love to see on their posts. One of our most diligent social-media-sharing members is @felt.buzz. Here's just one example of a tweet where he promotes @freewritehouse and our writers:
Twitter seems to be a happening place for #Freewrite members to share news beyond Steemit.
I also Facebook-share, but not LinkedIn or Reddit or whatever the other icons offer as options.
Something about Monday's "Window" prompt
inspired more than the usual award-winning freewrites. How many of us polished before posting? How many of us wrote these stories in no more than five minutes? I for one don't care how long it took - to me, the important thing is that the daily freewrite prompt led to a lot of good writing.
And we are a community
of writers who encourage and recognize good writing.
One person cannot (should not) nominate
everyone who deserves to be recognized in the weekly freewrite favorites post, Week 5/22/2019 - Win a Membership in Steem Basic Income - Tell us About a Favorite Freewrite, in which nominations are posted Tuesday through Thursday for the Friday Freewrite Favorites post,
so I will now try to add some more in this post.
Her beautiful face wore an expression of sorrow that nothing that she possessed, not upon her lovely figure, and not upon the vast lands her new husband owned, could ever assuage. Her jeweled hand pressed against the window suddenly, much as.....

Ditto the Twitter shout-out to @felt.buzz:
He wasn't the only one to call attention to @deeanndmathews's "Window" freewrite. Notice the payout on that post! Almost $50 - and the window is still open for more upvotes, SBD, resteems, and comments.
Comments are always allowed even after the seven-day window.
And we all hope for comments like these:

Very beautifully written Freewrite 😍
I was brought to this post by @mariita52 who thought it deserved some #STEEMLove
Resteemed upvoted and tweeted
My own Prompt: Window post also got a bit of love from @felt.buzz, and @Curie (#gottaloveCurie!).
It takes a lot of time away from writing fiction
to format, hyperlink, click on others' links, read, upvote, resteem, share, so I'm going to cut corners here with the rest of this list of Monday: Window freewrites.
Hello! Here is my freewrite!
Hereby my entry https://partiko.app/wakeupkitty/my-window-outside-didrakrw?referrer=wakeupkitty
Fresh from the oven ...
I just did my first freewrite! It was fun. Thanks for this activity!
Here is a taste of my wonderful weekend.
I hope you all are well!

Hi everyone! Here is mine: https://steemit.com/freewrite/@whatisnew/day-577-5-minute-freewrite-monday-prompt-window
my entry ma'am, so sorry if I was gone for long..
Click on the photos to read the blog posts
And, no, I cannot possibly read every single daily Freewrite and still have time to write any fiction of my own, but I wish I could manage it all!
Remember if a post is older than 6 days, try to find something more recent to upvote so they can get the rewards. Thank you so much for your support!

You're my role model and inspiration, @mariannewest, so if you think I'm supportive and lovely, I learned from you! (Thank you!!!)
Thank-you for including me ❤️ And for such a beautiful article on the @freewritehouse. I like @wakeupkitty wish I could read more than I do. But it’s improving. I will make it a point to go through your post. 😘

You're most welcome! I love the artwrok you include with your freewrites. Glad tohave you among us! your message is timely:
To put all in layman terms and lay it on the line. Computer screens can burn you out and smuggle all your time.
Remember to look around you, there's plenty there to see, just peer out the window, don't over do like me.
Thank-you :) I am pretty sure I spend just as much if not more time looking for what I think is the ideal image for my freewrites. It's nice though, it helps in painting the picture of what's being written. It's a very enjoyable process. ♥
*Me too! - spending way more than five minutes hunting for images to go with 5-ish Minute Freewrites!!! But it's also fun. And you have a natural gift for finding awesome images.
A truly great post @carolkean. You are a true supporter, the world needs many more people like you!
Thank you so much - more writers like you, with natural talent, are always needed too!!!
Oh my God!
thank you. @carolkean
This is a gigantic job.
Thanks for including me.
It's an honor that I do not think I won.
He has made some healing post and it has taken me several days.
Put links, codes, etc.
Really, thank you
You are most certainly worthy of the honor of being nominated for a Friday Freewrite Favorite!
I commented at your post - Beautiful beginning to a story of humanity venturing beyond our point of origin - I love view out the spaceship window of other colony ships passing in the darkness (presumably visible only because they're lit up). Magical piece! - and there's more, but anyone who wants to read more will have to click on https://steemit.com/nextcolony/@mariita52/learn-again-5-minute-freewrite-prompt-window and go the comments box. :)
I wish I had way more time to read and comment too (and a faster internet connection). Tobe honest I do no longer have time to write what I like, not even to edit my march madness story and that sucks.

You need to write what you love - otherwise, you will get burned out! I know it is hard when we want to read all the great posts out there, but we don't want you to disappear due to burnout!
I need to scedule a bit bitter, watch my time somehow.
I won't get a burnout because of not writing just an unsatisfied feeling at the end of the day. Somehow days are so short.

Ohhhh the slow internet speed. I hear you. And I too have not found time to finish/polish my March Madness story. ( I'm still torn: I set out with the premise of the missing sister being found dead, but something inside me rebels. Let her live. Make her fight and escape!) I hope you get caught up on your own writing. The writing community is fantastic but also a temptation or a distraction from the actual WRITING that brings us all together.
She could be mistakenly held for death for ...have a double or they found someone with her personal stuff/perhaps knew her... it would be "a hammer" if she would have survived (plus you have an open for the next books).
I hope to be able to scedule my time better and have it done before I end up in hospital again.
I really like joining here and try to participate but it takes so much time and I want to write too.

I want to write too and keep up -- that is a popular refrain in these parts. Welcome to the club!! And thanks for the feedback and for finding time to be here and write with us!
I'm telling you, it was the cop who framed her so that his daughter could win something or other. Am I remembering that incorrectly? Anyway, they have her, and they can't figure out what to do with her.
Just kidding. I so want Jenny to be alive though. I couldn't bear for you to lose another one.
I hope you both get a chance, and the inclination, to work on your MM stories.
What an amazing memory you have! The cop did frame her, or go way too hard on her, for the weed charge, which allowed his niece, second runner up, to usurp Jenny's music scholarship. And it appears one of the Feckers boys (the cop's nephews) have to be involved. I never did write in "Squeaky," because a guy with that nickname exists in real life - his trachea having been damaged by Barbed Wire At Neck Level, deliberately set to take down ATV riders in the woods. I haven't met him, but he exists. I think it's safe to use him in the story, but how do I top that name Squeaky, and how much is he like the guy who kidnapped Polly Klass after killing her parents... Her escape keeps coming to mind, and I keep picturing Jenny coming home ALIVE, not dead. I don't think I can even "go there" with a story where her body is found the way my sister's was, with police and BCI agents failing to collect DNA from her fingernails, at least (this was done in 1970 and earlier; no logical reason was given for the failure to collect evidence!). Police coverups or simple incompetence - it's too depressing to tackle in fiction. Let a gazillion other authors of procedurals deal with that sh*t.
Thank you for reading, commenting, and REMEMBERING!
you are an amazing reader! And I do need to finish this March Madness story. The November manuscript is so pathetic, I haven't had the temerity to look at it again. I really ought to delete most of it. But thank you for encouraging me!
You know it is my pleasure!
OMG people hide barbed wire to stop ATVer's? That is a horrible image. Who does that?! A lot of kids ride those! I hope whoever did that got what was coming to them. Is there some reason you can't use the name Squeaky? Because you're right, I can't think of anything better. Raspy, Scratchy, Croaky? Glottal? haha.
I didn't discover you until well after November, so I have no idea how your november story was. I'd sure hate to think you spent a whole month hating what you wrote though.
Omg, that's it!!! I LOVE IT
It sounds gutteral and disgusting, like Phlegm, Slime, Mucous, Moist...
I do hate my November novel but it's not beyond salvage. I swear. I just have to get busy salvaging.
Uh, yes, there are several lurid, documented, despicable cases of barbed wire at neck level. Many undocumented as well. As far as I know, nobody has been charged with the crime yet. I hope to be proven wrong on that!

🎁 Hi @carolkean! You have received 0.1 SBD tip from @wandrnrose7!
@wandrnrose7 wrote lately about: Live In Nanny Feel free to follow @wandrnrose7 if you like it :)
Sending tips with @tipU - how to guide :)
I like @tipu!
I need to get with the program and employ (bots?) like this!
Aha - here's a compelling point:
if you want to sell the STEEM locked by powering up, you need to power down - and this takes 3 months.
The tokens on the other hand can be traded instantly on the steem-engine market. This is where I see the main value of the TPU tokens - hold to receive share in the profits, sell whenever you want.
Announcing TPU - @tipU Tokens : Sharing Profit Tokens Backed By STEEM POWER
Be sure to click on that link because I took time to hyperlink it here. :)
*But I haven't found ways to add emojis because I'm on an old Lenova laptop. So, yeah. There's that.)
Tips are small amounts of SBD or STEEM that are send to other steem users. Sending a tip is a great way to reward a steem author, especially if your upvote is very small.
Tips also have other advantages:
--they are delivered instantly, no need to wait 7 days for payout
--they are send in liquid SBD/STEEM which means that no part is locked in STEEM POWER
they don't drain your voting power
Let's say you found a really helpful post and want to reward the author with a tip. To do this, simple replay to the post and put anywhere in the comment a !tip word. This will tell @tipU to send the tip to the post author.
The tip - in this example 0.1 SBD - will be sent almost instantly. @tipU automatically adds a comment about the tip.
The cool thing is that the comment will feature one of your latest posts so you can use this feature to advertise your blog.
That is cool!!! THANK YOU for this service - must sign on!
Thank you for mentioning my post!
