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.

Prompt: milk

  • 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 @snook's 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

  • I found this app through @emwalker. Use it regularly and it will help you type faster and more accurately. 10 fast fingers

  • 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!

Hi @mariannewest, I am new to Freewrite. If I am not participating the 200 days party by @freewritehouse, do I understand correctly that I need not include a selfie for the daily prompt? :)

Here's a link to my second freewrite:
https://steemit.com/freewrite/@happycrazycon/freewrite-prompt-milk

Hey!! welcome to this awesome group. No, daily freewrites don't need a selfie that's just a part of the contest :)

Thanks so much for the reply and clarification, @kilbride :) Appreciate that!

yes, no selfie required lol Welcome to the freewriters

Thank you thank you @mariannewest! :)

Well you obviously don't live with milk guzzling people like I do! I can never keep milk (cows, almond, coconut, soy, any of it!) in the house! I'm a little jealous!

His son can't open the fridge yet and get it out himself - give it a year or two 🤪

Ahhhh, THAT is the secret! My kids were getting the milk out at very young ages, but it's also my fault for encouraging it so that I didn't have to do it for them!!! I am beginning to see where I went wrong. :/

Ha! Well, have you tried converting your kitchen sink faucet into a milk faucet instead of a water faucet? Unending supply of milk!

@byn Glug glug! Do they also drink yogurt?

Sorry to repeat myself from the other post, but this is my first ever attempt at sci-fi. It's my favorite genre to read/watch, so I suppose it was about time that I gave it a shot. :)

Hi there! Not my usual sort of freewrite and very short! Have a great day!
https://steemit.com/freewrite/@mysecondself01/freewrite-day-209-something-simple

Splish Splash I was taking a bath...not just any bath but a milk bath... but don't let the title fool you, the story is not as bubbly... haha
https://steemit.com/freewrite/@kaerpediem/freewritehouse-party-day-3-splish-splash-it-s-a-milk-bath

Yes!! Thank you for reminding me. I was going to include it in a prompt - and promptly forgot.

prompt-ly... HA!

This is actually the beginning of a story using Monday's prompt (banana), but figured this might be a better spot to link it. If you read it, I hope you enjoy!
