So much going on at the Freewrite house!!!
- Get to know @honeydue through this wonderful interview by @brisby This will take you right to it!
- Giveaway Tuesday is still open for at least 10 hours!! That means that we are giving away SBI for you recommending a freewriter.
200 Day Party!!!!
Yesterday, we announced the contest:
Win 10+ SBD and SBI memberships!!!
The prize is over $ 24 SBD and growing!!!
We are adding half of the SBD payout of all 200 Day contest posts to the Prize!
Also, I decided to donate $ 2.00 SBD towards the prize and it didn't look like it went through - no indication showed up in my wallet - so I did it again. Haha.
The joke is on me - I donated $ 4 SBD.
The next thing I knew, @dynamicgreentk send $ 2 SBD.
Last night, I couldn't believe my eyes to see @simgirl's $ 7 SBD donation.
And this one is most amazing and we are so grateful!! @tristancarax send us $ 0.011. Thank you so much for contributing even though your earnings are still small. It will change - you will see. Thank you!!!
You too can donate to the prize - any amount is welcome. Just transfer with a memo: to 200-day celebration.
SBD will be added to the SBD payout. Steem donations will increase the SBI memberships we give out.
There are a couple of things you have to do for admission to the party. Run on over to the Freewrite House and check it out. Prepare to stay for a while!! We are going to have fun!! did I mention that we are going to have fun? Yes!!! Tons of it!!!
We suggest you register - even if you don't think that you can participate much. Nobody can join after this Sunday evening, 5/13/2018 PDT.
What are you waiting for? Rush on over to the Freewrite House!
Watch this space for Freewrite House News!!!!
Remember - if you don't have at least a $ 0.03 vote, do not vote on comments. Your vote will not count. It get's rounded down to 0. @snook tried it and I am as well. We wanted to be sure.
As I travel around Steemit, I am seeing so many wasted votes. Please, let each other know and if you can, top off a below 0.03 comment to bring it to payout.

- Set your timer for 5 minutes

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

And here is a counter opinion on voting by our freewriter @improv
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.
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 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.
