a little extra challenge for you using a picture again. this is by @byn's daughter @loliboofae

  • 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.

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

  • 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!

Love a visual prompt! Congrats to @loliboofae for her contribution. Here's what I made of it:

You are doing a great job by gathering a beautiful community of freewriters and artists.

It's a wonderful community!

Thank you!!

My Entry

I can't believe how amazingly well the prompt picture weaved a satisfactory ending for this character and his story. It's almost like there was some serious synchronicity going on.

Here is the concluding part of my ongoing freewrite about Ash's psychedelic adventures. I am going to produce a full Dtube authors reading soon of all 10 parts to highlight the story as a whole completed work, but for now that is it from Ash ;-)

Transcendent Mingling

Thanks a lot for today's prompt - I was toying with an idea in my head and that wonderful image was exactly what I needed.

The supreme being looked down on the big blob of goo and decided to do something.

Thank you for this post @mariannewest. Bookmarked that info. on the best tools for steemit. Thnx :)

It's been a while!! Great way to get back in the saddle, with a picture story... Here goes...

Hey all, I took a break from freewrite for a while but hopefully will be getting back into the swing of things now!

You love it when I proofread, right?

"@rexusmo - I think a few of you have started to leave links to your post. Every day, he has a cheering up post. You leave a link to a post you are proud off and you might get a reward. Keep trying!!"

"proud off", but you mean "proud of"

Freewrite coming soon.

Thanks!! I do. Because I don't see my mistakes - at least not all of them. And apparently, Grammarly wasn't catching this one either...

An image prompt! I love them!
This time I did some freepoetry:

Inner Galaxy

We all see things in Images differently. This is my induction from todays visual prompt.

Here is my take of the delightful art prompt! First Contact

Congratulations to @byn for having a talented daughter. I know you're so proud of her, I can sense that hehehe. Anyway, herebis my entry in this picture prompt.

Good day! Here is my entry for today's prompt on #freewrite by @mariannewest. Special thanks to @byn daughter's @loliboofae for her contribution.

Thanks and God bless!

Sincerely yours;
