Exciting News!! The Freewriters now have a community!
Please check out this post at the Freewrite House and join the community. It will be awesome if you can post your Freewrites through the community portal. Freewrite House Post
From tomorrow on, I will do my best to publish the prompt through the community. This means that I cannot schedule it the night before and the times will vary when the prompt shows up on your timeline. Probably a. bit later :)
Make sure and scroll down and see what is happening at the Freewrite House!!
Prompt: Coffee mug
- 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.
Freewrite in Spanish: Check @latino.romano
Freewrite in German: Check @freiesschreiben
If you like this and want more people to come out and play - resteem!
Also, I would love it if you all check out each others #freewrite and spread some love :)
Comments on each other's freewrite is the stuff our community is made off. I found out through some of you that a comment coin exists now. That initiative is still in its beginning phase, but I am excited about it. I have enough coins now to get the rewards for you started!!
- You earn a coin by leaving a good comment.
- When you have 80 cc (comment coins) you can reward your comments with a coin. Simply add cc as one of your tags.
- We also have coins at the Freewritehouse and will start to give some away as prices.
For more info, check out @commentcoin. I hope we all will be able to reward each other soon!!.

A contest by one of our benefactors
At the Freewrite House, we were so very lucky to receive 100 from @rycharde
Now he is running a contest I think many of you will enjoy very much. Check out the Nonsense Writing contest!
Let us know if you are participating so we can enjoy your entries.
Check out the Freewrite House for current contests.

Freewrite Info, Contests, Tips and More
If you don't know what a freewrite is, here is a link to the introduction post.
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!
Contests by our Fellow Freewriters
If you are running a contest let me know, I will list it here 😄
@whatisnew - Every Thursday a nature-related photo contest.
Ongoing Contests by supporters of the Freewriters
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!
And try to sponsor them into SBI.
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.
Está publicada la versión en español de hoy @latino.romano
German Freewrite Initiative
Sunday through Friday, @isarmoewe is publishing the Freewrite prompt in German. A lovely community is already forming. Find the prompt at /@freiesschreiben
Please visit her blogs and tell all your German friends!
Many of the Freewrite House Contests will be in German, Spanish, and English. Check @freewritehouse
A Contest I found You Might Want to Enter.
- @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.
- I am not sure how HF21 is really going to impact comment voting. But the dust level got higher for sure.
If your vote is below 0.06 - this is a must read by @thedarkhorse. It is based on HF20 information,but we still have Vote Dust
Some say that the best strategy is to not vote on comments anymore - we shall see soon if that is true or not. If you have low SP, it probably is a good idea to only vote on posts.
Also, check out @dustbunny - it is structured differently with the same goal in mind
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
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. You have to go back a bit - as far as August. But it still is all there.
- If you know of other helpful tools or people, please share with us!
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.
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. Check the account and discord for more details.
Remember, we have our own room in the Isle of Write Discord! Join us now!!!
