Five Minute Friday is when you take five minutes (set a timer!), and write on the topic that Lisa-Jo sets before us. Leave it unedited, hit publish, then link up at Lisa-Jo's blog.
Here we go. Today's topic is Write.
I can't help it. I have to write. You might as well ask me to stop breathing for all the success there would be if I tried to stop writing. I have written here, for 8 years, pouring out my feelings, my thoughts, my memories, and everyday things as well. I love being able to look back on these words.
But I don't just write here. I write in notebooks and on my computer - poems, short stories, even a novel in progress if I can ever pull it together. I don't care if I am published. That's not why I write. I write because the words pour out of my hands, my pen, my pencil - all those thoughts jumbled up in my head - waiting their turn to be written.
I need to take more time to write. More time for myself, for this love of words, this love of putting them together. More time to talk to God, more time to be at peace. Because when I write, I find myself more often at peace. I wonder why that is?
