On Fridays… we “shhhh” the inner critic and run freely with our words. Allowing ourselves to exercise our free-flowing words with a one word prompt from our fearless community leader Lisa Jo Baker. Then we join together and encourage each other – kind of like a Flashmob for Writers.
How can I pass up a Five Minute Friday prompt that shouts at me …
Aches and Pains?!
What, didn’t your email speak those words to you?
Mine did… because I’m a writer and I think about all those things when Lisa Jo sends the prompt on Fridays. Doubt I’ll write today, I’m frustrated I didn’t have time to write, etc.
See why I can’t pass up a juicy tidbit of a word like Writer? It invokes so much emotion in me that I, well, I was ALMOST propelled to the keyboard on Friday. I did take notes in my phone immediately though, and that’s enough..
I write because I have doubt, and so do others. That encourages us, empowers us and it’s a labor of love through the aches and pains and the groanings of life. It can propel us to SKIP washing the dishes ask for help with the kids so we can squeeze in a little time to write.
And I love it… and linking up on Fridays is really fun and has been a blessing in my life that took away some of the doubt, and definitely gave me some new friends with tons of encouragement!
Have a great weekend… and WRITE something! You know, if you have time ~ No pressure ~ Just sayin …
