Thank you for the present! What a surprise I hope to join it for a long time and others will do so too.

P.s. are you counting what we wrote or is there a way to do so?

Yes, there is a way to run a query to see how many each one has. Soon, we are reinstating the Over 20 and the Over 100 Club again. I am just a bit overwhelmed right now and can't do anything else.

Take your time and relax. You have plenty to do with your garden and traveling.

Thank you for the gift. This is fun.

Thank you so much for the SBI! Great way to celebrate 600 days, and I am glad I made it!

Thanks so much @mariannewest for the SBI. Very generous and much appreciated. 💕 😊. Have a wonderful weekend!
My entry:

Excellent congrats to the 600 badge holders, I think that should be a badge of honour anyways 😉

Yay for 600 hundred! On our way to two whole years!

Yup. We have to come up with something good for that :)

Do we have an "over 500 club"?

Thank you for the SBI @mariannewest, you are fabulous. 💕

Eh. This 5-minute method may not be the way to write an extended story or a series. Or maybe it's the very thing to force me to write a serialized story, with each day complete in and of itself, teasing the reader to want more.
Like Capper's Weekly - who's old enough to remember that?

The book, entitled “Too Good to Keep” was a collection of short articles, poems and letters that had been written in a publication called “Cappers Weekly.” This was a homespun weekly newspaper that was first published on July 10, 1879, as a weekly edition of the Topeka Daily Capital. During the next 35 years it changed its name almost as often as a Kansas weather forecaster changes his mind until on September 6, 1913, it settled on “CAPPER’S WEEKLY.”

I love the idea of the Carol Daily LOL

You scare me!
I should rise to the challenge
@goat-girlz is showing the chops for a daily. :) What she can do in five minutes puts me to shame.

Tagged you in my post on my account for the free write. Another poem I'm afraid. @mariannewest... My husband thinks I'm going crazy. 😂 But it's a good challenge.

Hi @dkkarolien,

Just drop your link here each time you write, so we can all see it. And the hubs can write too :)

I guess you were saying that you did the day 600 Freewrite? Here is your gift :)

Whoop whoop!!!! Thank you ❤️

I got around to another one, it was pretty much of a stretch as far as a freewrite goes, but I hope you all enjoy it and that some of you will think about my suggestion for another freewrite style tag.

It does have some nice pictures, or I think so.

pocketsend:[email protected], thank you for the generous SBI gift, wow!

Someone sent you some POCKET tokens. POCKET is an experimental sub-token system which operates on the Steem blockchain. It's like having a custom token without SMT. You can also send some to someone else by just commenting on a post with the following command: pocketsend:[email protected]_name,memo for example to send 10 tokens to @pocketjs, make a comment starting with: pocketsend:[email protected],This is a gift

I am running Pocket-JS confirmer code.

Thank you for the pocket! Have to check that out.

Of course you do! You wrote a freewrite for day 600 before I got around to sending out the SBI. That is how we roll around here LOL

I am so happy that you are writing with us and it is a pleasure to send SBI your way :)

@mariannewest thank you, I thought you meant for writing 600 free writes. My mistake.

Here my entry. May be it's too late. It's a poem
Show me the way home

Wow! Thank you!!!! Awesome community.
I'd also love to have some sort of banner about the freewrite house. It would be my first, which I think is fitting since you guys have given me so much.

Thanks so much for the gift Marianne! What a nice surprise! Hugs!
