This is where a brave and beautiful bunch gather every week to find out what comes out when we all spend five minutes writing on the same topic and then sharing ‘em over here.
How to Join:
Want to know how Five Minute Friday got started and how to participate? All the details arehere.
Featured Five Minute Friday:
And every week I’ll pick a post that caught my eye and share it down there in my side bar – see where it says “Featured #FiveMinuteFriday”? Yea -that could be you! Hop on over and visit some folk who make fireworks in just five minutes. They inspire me.
Meet the #FMFParty Writers:
And did you know there’s a whole community of writers that connect online before the prompt goes live on Friday nights? They use the Twitter hashtag #FMFParty and are about the most encouraging group around.
Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!
OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:::
Once upon a time
Chapter and Verse
Oblique Opportunities to learn from others
Cliffs at dawn
Dunes at sunset
Canyons in the changing light
Learning to parallel park
The first … Thai food, Gyro … attempt in the kitchen
The middle … Dr Seuss … “the waiting place” …
The process … braces, hair, buying a home, driving a long distance
The journey … from birth to beyond
The quest … for what
The lipgloss and spiral perms and hairspray and neons
Returning to their torment 25 years later
What isn’t TMed about Remembering?
