Last Week

We all were so busy with the March Madness and such, that we ended up with one glorious entry. Thank you to @kaelcy and @felt.buzz for writing a fabulous story. Read it here

You SBI is coming your way from @ntowl.


What is a We-Write?

If this is your first time coming across this WE-Write post - let me explain.

A We-Write is a fun way to write a story with a partner. There are several ways to go about it we are explaining below.

We are using the daily prompt given by @mariannewest to get the story started. What happens after that is up to you!!

The goal is to write one story with two writers. Confused? No worries. Here comes the explanation.


How Do We Play?

  • Find a partner
  • Write a story together
  • Both partners post the story - either their separate parts with a link to the other story or the partners writing as a quote in your post

History of the Game

We started this fun game way back when the Daily Freewrite Prompt celebrated day 100. We are now way past the one year mark and are still going strong.

At the time, we talked and @snook and @brisby did several test-writes to see which way works best. As it turned out - we liked them all.

How To in More Detail

Below, you find the explanation @brisby wrote for the original game. They are extensive and I encourage you to read them.

Find a Partner

  • Leave a comment under this post that you are looking for a partner.

  • Look in the comments under the Daily Prompt found @mariannewest and pick a person whose freewrite you like. Leave a comment under their post if they like to do the WE-write with you. Best to leave a link to this post as well.

  • Go to our discord and do a shout out if someone wants to play.

  • DM the person you want to write with.

  • Host a local meetup and everyone writes!!! Make sure to take pictures if you do.

The Writing Process

  • See Brisby's explanations about the different options below.

  • If you can't or do not want to create a shared document, you can make a post to Steem. Your partner can continue the story and also make a post either linking the partner's post or including it as a quote.

  • Or, you each can leave your writing in the comments of this post or a combination of the two.

Brisby's Explanations

@brisby wrote up and explanation - the "rules" of the game. As if Freewriters ever follow rules!!

@brisby wrote:

There are three ways to do this. They require correspondence through comments, Discord, Steemit Chat, email, or a shared document. Google doc is a free option. @snook wrote a terrific post explaining how to share a document if you have never made one. Here is her post. To work out any kinks, @snook and I beta tested the We-Write process and our story can be read here

Helpful tip: Plan how post payouts will be shared with your partner beforehand to avoid any misunderstandings.😁

Option 1

Pick a partner and open up a shared Google doc.
Decide who will begin writing.
Prepare a timer for each writer. Alternate writing for 1 minute each.
Use the word “Go” to let the other know that it was their turn.
Use the prompt provided.
Put the word/phrase at the top of the page.
The first freewriter sets a timer for 1 minute and begins writing.
When the minute is up, type the word “GO” to let the next writer know to begin.
Carry on, alternating turns, until 10 minutes have passed (each has written for 5 minutes).
Combine the sentences (cleaning up the formatting and removing the “Go’s” if you wish).
Place the “cleaned up” version of the story below the exercise.
Submit the link and then enjoy reading that day’s freewrites!

Option 2

Pick a partner and open up a shared Google doc.
Decide who will begin writing.
Set a timer for 10 minutes.
First freewriter writes one sentence.
Then, the other freewriter writes one sentence.
Switch back and forth until the 10 minutes are over.

Option 3

  • This option is especially good if you can't find a time which suits both writers
    Each freewriter writes a 5 minute freewite.
    Exchange the freewites (This can be done in comments, through Discord, Steemit Chat, or email)
    Write 5 more minutes on the partners freewrite and finish the story.
    You can both publish the freewrites and if you want, add a bit on how that kind of writing felt to you. Was it fun? Difficult? Want to do it again?


Now, on to the good stuff!!


10 SBI!!!

  • Everyone who participates will get a 100% upvote - either on the comment with the link or on their post. If we have votes to spare, we will upvote both.

  • 10 SBI shares from @ntowl!

2 pairs will get 2 SBI shares each.

1 pair will get 1 SBI share each.

If you like to sponsor additional prizes - let us know. Either in the comments of this post or DM Marianne on discord. mariannewest#6102

SBI stands for Steem Basic Income and you can find lots of information on the @steembasicincome account. The short explanation is that SBI = and upvote for life.
1 share will give you a small upvote - the more shares you have, the bigger the upvote. You also can increase your shares by upvoting the @steembasicincome posts and/or by delegating to the account.


Any questions? Ask in the comments! If not, grab your partner and let's get this show on the road!!

Thank you!!! :D

I haven't done a we-write for quite some time, and would love to try again if somebody out there is looking for a writing partner.


@kaelci is looking for a partner...


Thanks. I somehow got into the wrong week's post. Oops.

Congratulations to the awesome we-writers. 💕
