Freewriters. Listen Up!!
As you are reading each other's freewrites, have a document open and copy and paste links to freewrites you really like. Add a comment why you like that particular freewrite and make it a good comment - 50 words or more. Mark it poetry if it happens to be such.
Then, when Tuesday or Friday comes around - you are ready to enter your favorite freewrites in the Freewrite House drawings to win SBI.
Right now, each drawing is for one Steem Basic Income share for the recommender and a vote for the recommended freewrite featured in the respective Digest Editions.
As we get more income, we will increase the prizes.
You can sponsor a day with an additional prize of your choice.
Keep checking the Freewrite House Page for more contest you can join.

Contest Open: We-Write
- Set your timer for 5 minutes
- Start writing
- Use the hashtag #freewrite and #freewritepoetry if it turns out to be poetry
- 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.
If your freewrite turns into a poem, please use in addition to #freewrite also either #freewritepoetry or #freewritepoetrydigest so we can find you!
- 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.
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!

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.
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.

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
