I’m doing this 5 minute writing challenge again..and late-ish. Again. Friday is a great day, but for my writing and posting, it is sort of crammed, to-the-edges-of-the-day-sort-of-crammed. But it’s worth it. This weekly challenge alone has grown my writing skills in spades more than any other exercise I’ve done, so it’s well worth the time and the crazy for me. And oh yes, there is crazy scheduling chaos getting to writing this post. But it’s worth it-the wonderful friends I’ve met along the way and their kind encouragement as I go, and the gift of encouraging them. Priceless that is, really.
So, moving on-
So, a reminder in case you’ve missed it, this is the Friday Five Minute writing challenge, just in case, you know, you want to play sometime too-
This is a weekly writing “game” from my bloggy friend Lisa-Jo Baker, who blogs (and writes heart-breakingly, beautiful words and stories) at http://lisajobaker.com/
So, here’s the challenge, should you accept it: you write for 5 minutes with freedom like you have no fear or shame. And then you have to be brave (or pretend to be) and link up to her blog. Encouraging the writer who links up before you is part of the deal, too. This last rule is crucial, as we all need to encourage others. Why encourage another writer? Because at one point or another in our lives, we all need encouraging too.
Each week is a new word, a new thought starter, and you have 5 minutes to write….and are you ready? go-
