I have a favor to ask. If you are on YouTube, can you please subscribe to my Sustainable Living Podcast channel. I am not asking you to watch, just to subscribe. I want to be able to do live Yoga classes and need more subscribers before I can access that function.


Freewrite Info, Tips and More


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!


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](

  • If you know of other helpful tools or people, please share with us!

I know I'm a little late, but here's my response: The Traveller

Thanks for an awesome prompt!

I see I have some competition in the who gets it done first department @william8wayward. You rock!

I don't think I understand what do you mean by long-distance jumping? Long-distance running yes, but jumping? I never heard of it. Or is it only your fantacy? Tell me more?

I'm probably saying the wrong thing, maybe it's called a long jump. I person gets a running start and jumps into a bed of sand at track meets.
What are you doing way back when? Doing time jumping?

Yeah. Long jump.

Thank you so much @mariannewest for your dedication to this community, and thank you also so much for supporting me personally.

Thanks for listening.

Since I am a fan of long-distance running I noticed an interesting fact in records progression on 10,000 meters.

On June 8th, 2021 Letesenbet Gidey established a new world record on that distance with the amazing result of


This is almost the same result as the great Emil Zátopek showed on November 1st, 1953


in fact, Gidey would have beaten him in a photo-finish by three one thousand's of a second.
