Day 998: 5 Minute Freewrite: Wednesday - Prompt: I am frustrated


Imgur

As you know, many of the freewriters have moved to Hive, most notably the ones that had helped to keep the Freewriters community free of spammers. In the past, I banned a lot of them since the community was designed to be a place for freewriters who use the prompt for their writing to meet and to support each other.
I don't mind so much when others join in, but sadly, there are many on Steem who are spammers and plagiarists. I don't have the time to check on everyone. Instead, I am going to add a list to the prompt of true freewriters.
I will update the list as I see more names. To make it easy on me, leave a link with your freewrite in the comments of this post - if it truly is a freewrite...
@bold-n-italics, @wonderwop, @uthus2k, @owasco, @freedomtowrite, @thegreatdayne, @wakeupkitty, @isgledysduarte, @freedompoint, @toufiq777,@victoriaxl, @estoesundiario, @fendit

Please support the true freewriters with your comments and upvotes.
Originally, I was going to drop posting the prompt to Steem after Day 1000. But we still have a nice little group of writers here. So, I will keep posting and leave enough SP in my account that my vote makes a little bit of a difference. If any of the mentioned above are interested in moderating the community, let me know.

Freewrite on!

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

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](https://10fastfingers.com/typing-test/english
    • If you know of other helpful tools or people, please share with us!

I hope it will continue here on steemit. I am rather busy at the moment and have a huge problem signing in but like doing it.

What exactly does this spam look like?

images stolen from the internet - and articles stolen as well. They might look good but are completely plagiarized. Others are copy and paste and you can't even tell what they are trying to say. I muted over 30 people already but don't have time to check out everyone...

I plan to keep posting here until it dies.

Had I the time, I would love to moderate. Life, however, tends to get in the way. It seems that electricians are always busy.

Thank you anyway. We just see what happens. Maybe Steem will recover a bit...
And I keep adding the names to the post - and when I see a spammer, I will ban them from the community. I think I have 30 or 40 banned right now...
