How to use Writing.Social
Let’s remove our writing block using this tool. Follow these simple steps:
Step-1: Visit the website and understand the prompt
First, visit the website of Writing.Social. There you will see a countdown timer at the top of the screen. This timer displays the time left for submitting the page of the day. And under the timer there is some text explaining the tool. Thereafter, you will see a prompt on the screen. The home screen looks like this:
So, read the prompt carefully and understand it. You have to write your page on this prompt.
Step-2: Write a page according to the day or page number.
This is a collaborative writing platform. It means that each writer must extend the story from where the other writer left off. Hence, a story is the result of the collaborative efforts of the writers. You can also submit your page for the prompt. And your contribution will be far more significant if you write and upload your page according to the day or page number.
Let’s make this easy with an example. If you are writing for Page 2, then read some submissions for Page 1. And extend the story of the page you liked the most. So that, your submission doesn’t look irrelevant. And after the submission, your written piece will look like this:
Other rules and Guidelines:
There are a few other features and rules of this website:

- Word limit: There is a lower limit of 100 words and an upper limit of 1000 words. So you have to write between 100-1000, words in order to make your page eligible to upload. Any written piece under 100 words or over 1000 words will not be accepted.

Writing.Social is a useful tool for newbie writers. Most of the beginner writers, can not write daily due to whatever reasons. So this website can come in handy for all these writers. One negative thing about this website is that there is no way to claim the ownership of your content. You just enter your name and that’s it. Also, there is only one prompt per week. More prompt could’ve been better. Except for this, everything else is good. And it is free.
