Prompt: puppy love

  • 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!

@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.

A Contest I found You Might Want to Enter.

  • An easy contest to win SBI. Just leave a comment. It is called: Steem Basic Income 72h Raffle and repeats on a regular basis. Visit @elleok and find the latest raffle.

  • @thedarkhorse is running a weekly contest for a delegation for newbies who have less than 100 SP in their wallet. Visit his profile for the latest contest post.

Voting

Remember to check your voting power.
https://www.steemnow.com/ or use https://steemworld.org/

  • 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.
  • @fisheggs - follow this account and you get upvotes at random times.
  • @sydesjokes - he rewards his followers with SBD for any kind of interaction with him- comment, vote, resteem.
  • @danielsaori - he does a comment contest. A new challenge every week.
  • @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!!
  • If you have less than 100 SP give this a try. @thedarkhorse is running a weekly contest for a delegation for newbies who have less than 100 SP in their wallet. Visit his profile for the latest contest post.

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.

  • @thundercurator is a human resteem and upvote service. Check out their posts for more details.

  • @alliedforces is a bitbot that is designed for small accounts and you never lose. They also are major supporters of the Freewrite House and we are very grateful for that!!

March Madness!
I am very interested :) hehe!

Here is my #freewrite for today!!! :D ~ https://steemit.com/fiction/@kaelci/puppyloveafive-minutefreewrite-k9d1hmlws2

This one is fun! After @botefarm's puppy story, I was ready for some Black Humor. Well, this isn't quite Black, but it's a sporting tale and not overly long (as mine are).

A March Madness?
Do I dare? Do I dare? Do I dare?.....

·

Just check you don't have major holidays and family visits LOL

·
·

Hahaha
Major holidays check
It’s the family, gahhhh they really need to plan ahead hahaha
The whole lot of us are a random, go with the flow lot, unless someone makes the plan and gets a commitment out of us 😅 and even then

It looks like we lost @elleok - he has not posted in a month so the contest is gone.

Thank you for letting me know. I am so sad to see so many people go. Even if they would just do a picture a day or something like that. Now, with steempeak, they could schedule a bunch of posts and just come in once in a while...

·
·

I agree. This is why I try so hard to help people. the most posts, the better.

·
·

Not gone! Last few weeks had been crazy university wise for me so basically no time at all to do the raffles. In about two weeks all exams are done and I will be back on schedule. Thanks for the continuous shoutouts!

Here is my entry, thanks again for telling me todays prompt! https://steemit.com/freewrite/@wakeupkitty/freewriting-could-this-be-love-botc9sbk

This is a poignant tale with a fresh twist - out of darkness, goodness can still triumph!
A must-read.

Thanks to @dranuvar's comment that he revisits his settings and characters from 5-Minute Freewrites, I decided to visit one of mine with today's prompt. Puppy Love! Even Steven, Part 2:
