Dang, I don't know where my headspace was at when I picked all the prompts - but they are kind of appropriate to what is going on right now...
@felt.buzz wrote this great tutorial on how to post to the community. Read the post here. Be prepared that there will be more changes in the future. Together, we will figure it out.
When you post through the community, you will need to resteem your post to show up on your blog. You have to resteem from the community. In the future, private communications will be possible through the communities and only what we chose to resteem will appear on our Steem profile
See below for more info on how to join the community. @Felt.buzz made this awesome gif!
Make sure and scroll down and see what is happening at the Freewrite House!!
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!!
For more info, check out @commentcoin. I hope we all will be able to reward each other soon!!.
Check out the Freewrite House for current contests.
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.
@felt.buzz is holding the #zapfic contest!! Write a story in 240 characters!
@improv is the master of puns! Enter his Punday contest at his profile @improv.
@whatisnew - Every Thursday a nature-related photo contest.
Drawing/Comic Contest by @organduo: Pinky And Spiky Drawing Contest
@rycharde has nonsense writing contest every other week
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 - and many are suffering.
I know that we can't change the country or help all that are suffering, but we can help our Freewrite Community members - at least a little bit. Please, upvote the following people as often as you possibly can!
@latino.romano, @isgledysduarte, @oizaguirres, @sacra97, @mllg, @yeceniacarolina, @lisfabian, @issymarie, @belkisa758, @felixgarciap, @zhanavic69, @mariita52, @teresah
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.
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
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

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.
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)
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
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
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 way back - as far as August. But it still is all there.
