Prompt: yogurt

  • Set your timer for 5 minutes
  • Start writing
  • Use the hashtag #freewrite
  • Publish your piece (include a link to this post if you wish)

Copy and paste your URL into the comment section of the prompt post.

  • Or, if you don't want to publish your freewrite, just copy and paste as a comment under the prompt post.

If you don't know what a freewrite is, here is a link to the introduction post.

Here is @snooks excellent tutorial on how to join our freewrite adventure

And @improv's input:

Two things I do a little differently. I just type "timer" into google and it pops up a 5-minute timer. I also type directly into steemit. I also rarely use a photo, don't I? So that's three things.

Please read, comment and vote (if you have voting power) on each others freewrites as much as you can. Especially if you are new to the platform, you will be surprised how many friendships are formed by reading and commenting on each other's work!

Bandwidth Problems

I know that many of you are very new to the platform and your wallets are pretty empty. Believe me, we all started there!! Here is an excellent article which explains what bandwidth is and why you might have a hard time logging in some days - or posting. Thank you @jrswab for this explanation

There are many contests on Steemit. From art to music to writing and everything in between. Enter as many as you can!! And take advantage of the free money people give away I listed in the money section below.

Great Opportunity

This is a great opportunity for those of you who are more serious about your writing and are ready to take it to the next place. The Isle of Write just announced their new project. SBD can be won and you can even make it into a print edition. Read the details here.
An update on how to enter your work.

Writing help

  • A free app: Grammarly. A lot of us are not native English speakers and I am finding it a helpful app. It will underline spelling and grammar mistakes. Just remember that is is not always right -especially if you use complex sentence structures. Here is the link

  • Remember The Most Dangerous Writing App. You set the time - 5 min - and start typing. Don’t stop!!! It will destroy what you wrote if you stop for more than 3 seconds - and backspace does not count as writing on the app. If you are prone to stop and think - this app forces you to keep going. You can make corrections after the 5 minutes are over.

  • A timer. Egg timer is a free tool you can use on your desktop to set a time. This is useful for our freewrites or if you want to work in blocks of time and then take a break. Here is the link

  • Our fellow freewriter @arbitrarykitten has a business here on Steemit. Several editors are offering to edit and format your post for a small fee. Check out their intro post

  • Our discord channel Isle of Write has workshop rooms for fiction, non-fiction, and poetry where some of the experienced writers might be able to give some tips. Join with this link https://discord.gg/zfXNRnK

  • If you are ready to get serious about improving your understanding of the English language check out @majes.tytyty blog. He has lots of useful information to understand words and their roots better. If you have questions or need help, leave a comment on his blog.

  • If you know of other helpful tools or people, please share with us!

Money

There are several people who offer SBD for free on this platform! How great is that!!

Here are a few

@fisheggs - follow this account and you get upvotes at random times.

Here is my freewrite . It's entitled: "Don't Forget Your Breakfast:" https://steemit.com/freewrite/@gjones15/five-minute-freewrite-don-t-forget-your-breakfast Thanks!

Having completed the writing prompt... I am getting myself some yogurt now. :P

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

The flavour might be a little off. Something could be wrong with the freezer.

Here's a silly romance Davey's Girl
I hope all of you are having a good night/day!

Here is my little tale for today. And I included a fun tag too! ;)

I haven't done a freewrite in 6 days! But I made it today! Lola Part 14

I did it! I caught up :)

Hi everyone! "A day late and a dollar short." This is for yesterday's prompt: record. I wrote it last night but couldn't post it until now. https://steemit.com/freewrite/@whatisnew/day-165-5-minute-freewrite-monday-prompt-record

Good day my dear! Here is my entry in today's prompt.

Also, I wrote on this topic 9 months ago, before there was a @freewritehouse... before @mariannewest was even posting freewrite topics! https://steemit.com/freewrite/@improv/yogurt-5minutefreewrite

My freewrite about the health benefits of kefir and how I discovered it https://steemit.com/freewrite/@ablaze/kefir-health-benefits-5-minute-freewrite

Hi there! I hate to be a cow - but I am certain that today is day 166 of the Freewrites; not 165 (yesterday was 165). If you look on my blog list I missed 163 but that is because I finally missed a day and the weekend option was 164. Yesterday was 165 so today is 166. Just call me OCD!
Anyway - here is today's write:

Thank you so much!!! I get numbers and letters mixed up all the time and am so grateful when someone lets me know!!! fixing it now!
