Day 356: 5 Minute Freewrite: Thursday - Prompt: orange blossom

in #freewrite3 years ago

Imgur



It's WE-Write Time!!! This time, you get to finish the story @freedomtowrite started for you.

Have fun!!!

Here we go



Finally, I heard from our friend @cefralelo. She had to be under strict bedrest for the last three weeks since the operation and is still dealing with low hemoglobin levels.

I am sure that she can still use our help to buy the medication she needs.

Here is my offer to you (again 😄)

  • You send her Steem
  • Then drop a comment on one of my posts with a screenshot of your transfer
  • I will buy you SBI shares for the same amount you send to @cefralelo

A huge shoutout to all of you who already did that.



Do you know what the Freewrite House November Madness is all about?

Check out the Freewrite house!

It might have something to do with writing a novel in one month :)

Prompt: orange blossom

  • Set your timer for 5 minutes
  • Start writing
  • Use the hashtag #freewrite and #freewritepoetry if it turns out to be poetry
  • 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.

If your freewrite turns into a poem, please use in addition to #freewrite also either #freewritepoetry or #freewritepoetrydigest so we can find you!

  • Or, if you don't want to publish your freewrite, just copy and paste as a comment under the prompt post.

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!

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!

@corderito
@milrosas
@cefralelo
@larryparra
@lilianmacias
@oscarina
@jakim7
@latino.romano
@victoriabsb
@joanm897
@teresah

And try to sponsor them into SBI.

We are thinking of doing a collaboration workshop on how to get a manuscript ready for publishing. Let me know if you are interested - both, to either share your expertise and/or to learn...

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.

Voting

Remember to check your voting power.
https://www.steemnow.com/ or use https://steemworld.org/

  • I am not sure if the following is still correct.
    If your vote is below 0.03 - this is a must read by @thedarkhorse. Vote Dust

This is an initiative called @dustsweeper that is helping all of you [who deal with vote dust](Here is an initiative to help all of you who are dealing with voting dust. find the details here)

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.

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

  • @ntowl has started a new business here on Steemit you might be interested in. She is offering editing and formatting services for your posts at a very reasonable price.
    If you want your posts to shine, @ntowl can help.
    Check out her post here

  • 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. If you have questions or need help, leave a comment on his blog.

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

Money

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

Here are a few

  • @scrooger has a great "help the minnows" project. It is so easy!! Visit his profile for details.
  • @fisheggs - follow this account and you get upvotes at random times.
  • @sydesjokes - he rewards his followers with SBD for any kind of interaction with him- comment, vote, resteem.
  • @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!!
  • #newbiegames takes you to all kinds of games and competitions @newbiegames

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. There is an initial sign up fee of 4 Steem. Your account will be checked and if approved, you will make that 4 steem back in the first month through qurator upvotes. Check their account and discord for more details.

You are the best!! Yours is coming right now! ❤️

How far back in time do our wallets go? I don't need any compensation, no letting you buy me SBI shares for the same amount I sent to @cefralelo. I just wondered how far back we can go...

On Steemd you can go back to the beginning. It shows all your transactions. I am pretty sure that I bought you the SBI and thought I dropped the proof in one of your comments. Going to look back too and make sure.

Well, you don't need to reimburse me for a donation to a good cause - I'll donate it right back! Thanks Marianne. And for some reason (maybe it's my incredibly slow internet provider), I can't see transactions beyond one week.

Almost 1 year of your wonderful freewrites. Congrats.

Glad I started about 4 or something months ago. It has been fun and interesting to see what has come out of me.

Thank you! And it has been fun reading your work! And I hope it will be for a long time :)

Hi, I don't want to be pushy, but just wanted to let you know that the 1 year anniversary of the Daily Prompt is coming up in 6 days. That would be a great time to have a big splash of some sort. Let me know if you want to do something that soon.

Hello! Did you get Discord invite from crypto.talk yet?
