@sydroc started to use the prompt as an inspiration for a drawing. You all are invited to do the same.

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](https://10fastfingers.com/typing-test/english

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

Saw this prompt yesterday and came up with this while off the net...

I had been looking around for about fifteen minutes until I found him. Oti. The best bet for a quality barstool. I asked for the price of making one. He told me 35 dollars. “I need ten”, I said. “I’ll pay you 25 for each.”

“That won’t do, the materials and labor costs won’t allow. Maybe 33 each, and I promise quality work, I bet that’s why you’re here,” He said.

“Ok, 30, ten stools.” I bargained. “I need them for kids doing technical drawing. Nothing too fancy.”

“32 dollars, take it or leave it. Below that, it won’t be worth my time,” Oti stood his ground.

His quote was a bit above my budget. I contemplated going to Kariz’s shop and try my chances there, but he’s known to be crafty.

Further down at Kariz’s, I found him and his crew talking animatedly, laughing over something amusing. They did not seem too busy. Since it was about lunch hour, I assumed they were on a break. “Hi Kariz, I need some bar stools, how much will It cost to make one? Nothing fancy, just a simple design fit for school kids on a drawing table.”

“Aah, that is simple!” he said, albeit with confidence. “One with a metal frame and wooden seat is 28 dollars. How many did you say you need?”

“I need 10, but I only have enough for 20 dollars per stool,” I had to test the waters...

I did't time myself, next time I will.

Well done! Thank you for writing with us!

I have to be honest, it was more like a 7 minute freewrite 😖 I kind of lost track of time haha

That's a great prompt. I'm sure I can come up with something.
