Just letting you know something. I have totally thrown out my back and my life had to slow way down. On top of that, Hive has been wonky for me. For that reason, I decided not to lead the November Madness this year.
Of course, all of you are more than welcome to sign up with NaNoWriMo, to use the daily prompt to propel your story forward, and to drop a link in the comments of the prompt post. I am happy to upvote your work - not that my vote is worth very much.
Love all you writers - just out of energy for now...
Check the @freewritehouse for fun contests and our Daily Curation Post!

@sydroc started to use the prompt as an inspiration for a drawing. You all are invited to do the same.
Since our Freewrite community is growing, we decided to revive our Freewrite Discord for Freewriters to hang out, talk to each other, and have some fun. I am offering the Freewrite Prompt on several platforms - not everyone is going to be on Hive.

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 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
