Day 986: 5 Minute Freewrite: Friday - Prompt: new age


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.


The Freewrite House has moved mostly to Hive. I will still publish the prompt here. Join the Freewrite House fun on Hive


Make sure and scroll down and see what is happening at the Freewrite House!!


Prompt: new age

  • 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 Info, Tips and More


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!


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

Eliza here. It's been really long time since I last wrote a freewrite... But I never forgot about Freewrite... actually I guess all my posts are freewrite in some form... it's just not following the daily prompt...
I should challenge myself again by following the prompt given...
Happy 4th to you and your family!

04.07.2020 11:52

Yes!! challenge your self again. Are you on Hive as well? I publish the prompts on Steem, Hive, and Uptrennd :)

Ya, I am on Hive too... Freewrite is a great challenge that everyone should try... Once tried will get hooked... It's magical as well and will unleash our potential... :D

And, tell me more why you have a new account...I have been away - just publishing the prompt and not following much more - so, fill me in with what is going on :)

This is actually my second account... I have this account for years ... Just recently my husband uses this to play the Steemmonsters... So I thought I should start activating this as well...
