Watch this space for Freewrite House News!!!!
Last year, around this time, we all were abuzz with the idea of November Madness - to write a novel in one month.
Truthfully, this year, my life has been very different. I have been traveling a lot. And I mean a lot. And I had tons of people staying at my house. As a matter of fact, I still have a couple of house guests.
My Steem time has been barely hanging in there if that makes sense.
That said. If any of you have been really looking forward to do this Novel Writing crazy thing - writing a novel in a month - I will rally and think something up to make November Madness fun for all of us.
In the past, we have used the already well-established platform (and the pioneers of the idea to make the first draft a group supported effort) of NaNoWriMo to help us keep track of things as well.
Please tell me what you think in the comments
Make sure to read the Freewrite Digest at the @freewritehouse
Thank you so much @carolkean for going way above and beyond. We love your history lessons and everything else you pour into this digest. Please, read!!
Don't miss the WE-Write fun!!

Freewrite Info, Contests, Tips and More
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.
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!
Contests by our Fellow Freewriters
If you are running a contest let me know, I will list it here 😄
@whatisnew - Every Thursday a nature-related photo contest.
Ongoing Contests by supporters of the Freewriters
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!
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.
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.

German Freewrite Initiative
Please visit her blog and tell all your German friends!
Many of the Freewrite House Contests will be in German, Spanish, and English. Check @freewritehouse
A Contest I found You Might Want to Enter.
- @thedarkhorse is running a weekly contest for a delegation for newbies who have less than 100 SP in their wallet. Visit his profile for the latest contest post.
- I am not sure how HF21 is really going to impact comment voting. But the dust level got higher for sure.
If your vote is below 0.06 - this is a must read by @thedarkhorse. It is bsed on HF20 information,but we still have Vote Dust
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.
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
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.
@jonsnow1983 does regular posts for English learners to help with the correct usage of words and grammar. Even native English speakers can learn from him.
If you know of other helpful tools or people, please share with us!
