Prompt: warm water bottle

  • 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.

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!

Let's Do Community!!!

As many of you know, we have a Spanish speaking Freewrite effort going on. The fearless leader is @latino.romano who is putting a lot of effort into building the Spanish language community. Thank you!!

But that is not what I want to talk about today. I want to talk about Venezuela.
If you listen to the news at all, you know that the country is having a lot of difficulties right now - and many are suffering.

I know that we can't change the country or help all that are suffering right now. But we can help our Freewrite Community members - at least a little bit.
Please, upvote the following people as often as you possibly can!

@milrosas
@cefralelo
@larryparra
@oscarina
@jakim7
@latino.romano
@teresah
@seifiro
@dranuvar

And try to sponsor them into SBI.

  • We are thinking of doing a collaboration workshop on how to get a manuscript ready for publishing. Let me know if you are interested - both, to either share your expertise and/or to learn... Starting in either December or January.

If you have a business on Steem you want to share, let me know. I will start a dedicated section in the resource portion of the prompt posts.

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.

  • I am not sure if the following is still correct.
    If your vote is below 0.03 - this is a must read by @thedarkhorse. Vote Dust

This is an initiative called @dustsweeper that is helping all of you [who deal with vote dust](Here is an initiative to help all of you who are dealing with voting dust. find the details here)

Also, check out @dustbunny - it is structured differently with the same goal in mind

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](https://10fastfingers.com/typing-test/english

  • The 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!

Money

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.

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

Here are a few

  • @steemexplorers gives away an SBI unit almost daily. Check out their profile for more info.
  • @scrooger has a great "help the minnows" project. It is so easy!! Visit his profile for details.

  • @sydesjokes - he rewards his followers with SBD for any kind of interaction with him- comment, vote, resteem.

  • @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!!

These options cost you a little bit, but your return is manyfold and I highly recommend that you consider them.

  • @qurator is an initiative to support steemians who post good content. There is an initial sign up fee of 4 Steem. Your account will be checked and if approved, you will make that 4 steem back in the first month through qurator upvotes. Check their account and discord for more details.

I am thrilled that this prompt allowed me to stick with a new character I just met this week. I can't wait to see what Dr. Sarah Ferguson gets into next... Enjoy WARM WATER BOTTLE by A.E. Jackson (https://steemit.com/freewrite/@aejackson/warm-water-bottle-5-minute-freewrite)

Here is my refreshing post for this interesting prompt :)

https://steemit.com/esteem/@fitinfun/freewrite-day-439-warm-water-bottle

Very interesting, after I take a little more time to read some of the content Posted #freewrite, I may realize, I can contribute, and in that case I would love to take a stab at free writing.
If not, I'm sure that I will enjoy the content produced by those already creating.
I have taken the time to read two compositions and really enjoyed both of them.

Thanks

Everyone can participate! there is no right and now wrong. You just write whatever comes to your mind. Even if it is : I don't know what to write over and over again :) You will see, before you know it, some thought jumps into your brain. The important part is to not think and stop - just keep on writing.

Sounds simple enough, my mind never stops thinking, well that is unless I'm asleep. Sleep, that is something I think is a waste of time. Time, now that I think of it, it may be time to take a quick break to empty the bladder. I will be right back. There is a real joy being able to relieve the old bladder in such a way that you don't always need to use the bathroom. I guess that is the beauty of living in the middle of nowhere.
Save water, that is always a good thing. Save electric, no need for the well pump to kick on. Save energy not having to go to the bathroom for a number one. This habit of emptying the bladder outside must seem a little caveman like, but have been saving water, electric, and energy since. Who cares what someone else reading this thinks, they have no clue who I even am. Why would they read this, I have been creating quality content for 7 months now any few people even take notice. I bought this property 40 years ago. So glad we did. I wonder how different life would be now if we had not purchased this property. $90.58 per month to a guy named Leonard C Todd Jr. Now, that single document with my monthly payments recorded in real hand writing, that would make for a good post. Actual letter writing, that kind of interaction has basically gone by the boards, what a shame. Does anyone remember the thrill it was to get a letter in the mail. That may be the next thing to exit stage right. S--t, I need to call Wayne Transmission to set up an appointment for my son's car to be serviced, later.

There you go!! A perfect Freewrite😀👍 And for what it is worth, we per in a mulch bucket that goes into a compost pile to save water and build fertility 😀

And your payment sounds like a dream. We have a low payment for our area but it is way way higher 🥴
