Day 76: 5 Minute Freewrite - Prompt: ducks

in #freewrite6 years ago (edited)


I need some help. My semi-vacation is coming to an end and I won't have that much time for Steemit anymore. Don't worry, the daily prompts will continue. What I need is some readers.

As you might know, I have made it a point to visit all of you, read your freewrites and leave you the next prompt. I think we all like the idea that at least one person reads what we wrote. With less time for the platform, I might not be able to do that every day.

That is where you come in. I would love for some of you to take on one day a week and read every freewrite for that day, leave a comment and drop a link. Or maybe two of you share a day.

Let me know if you are up for that either in the comments or in the discord freewrite room. Thank you!!

Update: @svashta had the great idea to create a google spreadsheet you all can access to add your name if you are interested . Here is the link to the spreadsheet

I totally understand if a commitment is too much but love if you visit and comment on your fellow freewriters' posts whenever you can.

Thank you!

Please welcome our newest freewriters @lucylin and @dakini5d

Every day, I am inviting you to visit one and leave some comments and votes. Today, please visit @wonderwop

Prompt: ducks

This prompt was inspired by @brisby

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

Here are a few

@sydesjokes - he rewards his followers with SBD for any kind of interaction with him- comment, vote, resteem.
@craigcryptoking- he does a giveaway a few times a week. All you have to do is to be the first, fourth, eight or maybe the 150th commenter.
@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!!

Sounds perfect to me! :D

Hey @mariannwest! I just posted my response to the #freewritechallenge. Check it out here and let me know what you think!

Today's freewrite is a little dirty:

Rubber Duck and Shit Pool

I gotta admit I've been lazy reading other's freewrites. I'll make sure to fix that.

Here's my story, simply called 'Duck.'

I can't really commit to request, I'll be back at work myself. I do try to read some of them.

Alright, here's my duck entry. Sorry, it's not really a story because I'm just not feeling the muse. Still, I had more fun with it than I thought I would.

As always, this was an enjoyable prompt. :) Here is my submission:


only my second try.... not bad i think lol you can read it here
