Yesterday's offer still stands. If you transfer Steem to @cefralelo I will buy your SBI shares for the same amount.

Thank you @wonderwop and @preparedwombat for taking me up on the offer!!!

Last Friday, I gave you the prompt Freedom. @eaglespirit commented that she is hosting Freedom Friday over at the Freedom Tribe @freedomtribe. We decided to try a collaboration. Make sure you check out her post (I will link it here as soon as I see it) and drop your freewrite here and there as well! Here is @eaglespirit's challenge post

Prompt: Freedom of Personal Power

  • 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!

@milrosas
@cefralelo
@larryparra
@oscarina
@jakim7
@latino.romano
@teresah

And try to sponsor them into SBI.

Freewrite.png

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...

Freewrite.png

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

A Contest I found You Might Want to Enter.

  • An easy contest to win SBI. Just leave a comment. It is called: Steem Basic Income 72h Raffle and repeats on a regular basis. Visit @elleok and find the latest raffle.

Contests by our Fellow Freewriters

If you are running a contest let me know, I will list it here 😄

Ongoing Contests by supporters of the Freewriters

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.

  • @thundercurator is a human resteem and upvote service. Check out their posts for more details.

Steemit Tools

This is the most comprehensive list of applications on this blockchain I have seen. I highly recommend that you bookmark it!! I also will include it in the growing resource section in the future. Steemit Tools

Well, I wrote it at lunch, but just now have the time to post it... Be gentle it's my first time...
https://steemit.com/freewrite/@coinsandchains/first-try-at-5-minute-freewrite-or-prompt-freedom-of-personal-power

Well you picked the hardest one ever, so you're awesome in my books. 👍👍

lol, well it's your fault, after your comment on the contest I decided I just needed to do it. It was killing my OCD not going back and rephrasing or fixing sentence structure.

Good job and welcome. I fix my typos - I'm a rule breaker, but I still get the job done.

And I would still be working on it 3 hours later...

I know what you mean, but my typos are so bad that no one could even read my work if I do not do it.

Good information and congrats on your first freewrite. Welcome @coinsandchains

Welcome to the freewriters club and @freewritehouse :) woot! Woot! I have seen you around here and there.

I've seen you a few times as well. I guess we all tend to travel in similar circles.

This is your first?! Aw! Precious! ;P

Yeh, I was making an attempt to be funny, but I pretty much failed miserably, which is something I'm really good at. Failing... I just usually fail forward.

I was being serious. This is a precious moment. Years from now, you will look back on today with nostalgia as you write your 1000th freewrite.

did you really say Precious? Muahahahaha

such an improv

We are all about encouraging people :)

I can tell, very inviting community.

Weeeeeee, welcome @coinsandchains, you're gonna love it here!

That's awesome! Welcome to the freewriters, @coinsandchains :)

rewarding it with an upvote and comment from @thundercurator.

Get on-board early and grow with us!

How would you define freedom of personal power? How is it different that just freedom?

Thanks

That is your job :) Maybe we just call it personal power - the freedom it gives us or not. Or you could take it to the question if we have personal power or not. Is it an illusion? Do we think we have freedom to yield it or not? Anything goes with a freewrite. Actually, your question would make a great first line!

Thanks. I always seek for understanding when possible. I hate being completely in the dark, but maybe that's good for me sometimes. Thanks!

I don't like it and I complained about the prompt (it just came out) but here's my freewrite. Thank you: https://steemit.com/freewrite/@michaelluchies/my-5-minute-freewrite-day-357-freedom-of-personal-power
