Day 1293: 5 Minute Freewrite: Thursday - Prompt: rucksack
As you know, I am in need of a little break.
For now, I will be scheduling at least another week of prompts in advance.
Contests at the Freewrite House will still be on hold for that time as well.
Check the @freewritehouse for fun contests
- Set your timer for 5 minutes
- Start writing
- Use the hashtag #freewrite
- 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.
- Or, if you don't want to publish your freewrite, just copy and paste as a comment under the prompt post.
Since our Freewrite community is growing, we decided to revive our Freewrite Discord for Freewriters to hang out, talk to each other, and have some fun. I am offering the Freewrite Prompt on several platforms - not everyone is going to be on Hive.
Here is your invite
Contest by Friends of the Freewriters
If you are running a contest you want to be listed here, let me know.
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 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. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCA73SuaMBnBIaB5OdiL_y6Q
