Today, I am joining Lisa-Jo and lots of others for 5 Minute Friday. I write for 5 minutes unedited. Yes, I said UNEDITED. You can read all the ins and outs and dos and don’ts here.
Today’s prompt is: WRITE
It is a journey really…this business of writing. For me, it started out as a way to help me be a little more accountable with my quiet time. Time I spend in the morning just me and God.
Sometimes I talk to much, others times I don’t. But this space, this writing, my journal are all extensions of the conversations He and I have/had.
Then, somewhere along the way, my thoughts got hijacked and no longer was I only writing about my reflections from that day.
I was sharing about Amy or my vacation.
But I learned that writing can be a great stress reliever. It can help me process things. And I have not always been a writer. I know, many bloggers and writers have always written. They have journals from when they were children…not me.
No, I write these days because I feel called to do so and I am not sure where the journey is leading. But I am holding on. Because like life, writing can be a wild ride.
