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!

Spanish Freewrite Initiative

The Daily Prompt is now also being published in Spanish and a Spanish language community is forming.

@latino.romano is the leader of the community and I am sure, he would love for you to stop by and say hello - in any language. If you are bilingual, please feel free to publish you freewrite in both languages and drop the link at both Daily Prompt posts.

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

  • 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!


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

Good morning! Here is yesterday's freewrite. Have a wonderful 4th!

Where is everybody? Anyhoo... Dash is back! It's an epilogue thing...

When the gentle Encourager @deirdyweirdy dropped the prompt to me, I was having a miraculous short free time, so I managed to do the freewrite :D

Hve a nice 4th of July, you all American friends!

ok, I'm going to tag some people. @honeydue, @f3nix, @tygertyger, @wandrnrose7, @rensoul17, anyone want to team up on a wewrite? (Option 3, I don't think I'd be able to find the time for the first two.)

oh and yeah... not even anywhere close to 5 minutes on this one... ;D

Happy Fourth of July! Here's my post for the prompt: state

Happy 4th of July @mariannewest and all the others celebrating! My story:

Oh, @MarrianneWest,

I come to your #freewrite posts all the time and wish to enter. But don't much feel like fiction so have no idea what to write. One day, one day. ;)

This comment was made from

So, here is what you do. You set your timer or use the most dangerous writing app. And then, you start writing whatever comes to your mind. Maybe you write something like this:
Epilogue - what a crazy word to give as a writing prompt - isn't that supposed to come at the end of a story? Not at the beginning where I am at right now. What kind of a crazy person is giving a prompt like that. Speaking of crazy people. Yesterday, I went shopping and this person had the most amazing = crazy outfit on. it looked so uncomfortable and.......

See. You can write whatever. Even if you write for 5 minutes... I don't know what to write, I don't know what to write.... and before you know it, something pops into your mind.

As long as you know that there is no right or wrong, good or bad. Just whatever comes to mind...

Try it!!!

Ok, so it really doesn't have to be fiction then. I kinda knew that but hadn't read through enough entries to be sure... and didn't ask. ;)

You make it sound so easy... but I can do what you just described. Ok, Marianne. I'll try. Not today but very, very soon. Clearing my head and some things that have to get done.

Bless you! xxx

Looking forward to it!! Give yourself permission to have no expectations, that there is no good or bad and just write without censoring what comes out :) You might surprise yourself

Hi! Here is my first freewrite entry ☺️

Welcome to the freewriters!!

Here is today's offering. A touch of the macabre today with epilogue.

This one was bit harder than yesterday's for me. Here is my attempt:

Well, this would've gotten me eliminated had the contest still been running. I was outside for most of the day and just took it easy, otherwise I would've made it home in time. :P In that sense, good thing it's over. :P

I hear you!! :)
