Easy, free giving on FreeRice

This doesn't seem to be recently posted on any blogs. And it needs to be posted often. On FreeRice, every time you give a correct definition for a word, 20 grains of rice is donated through the United Nations. Don't worry about the small amount, it adds up fast. Do worry about how addictive this game is for writers!

Hello! I just love playing that! Thanks for reminding me. I'll go play some today!

It's a great break--and a reminder of how many fun words there are for us writers to use!

Great little test of vocabulary. I thought I knew a lot of words, but about number five, Bingo! I was shot down in flames.

Nice post. I'll stop by again.

I loved this link. It's great.

Thanks, swubird, for your comments. And that's part of the FreeRice's allure--you get to learn about a lot of words. I just visited your blog and it looks to be very intriguing.

And thanks too, to Rebecca--with her gorgeous photos...

Hi,
The really good thing about it is that becoming addicted, you don't have to feel guilty or that you've wasted your time.

Conda said...

Too true, Dave!

I never remember the rice until someone reminds me, so thanks, Conda!

You may not thank me if you are spending writing time playing, Nancy!
