Linking up with Lisa-Jo over on her site today.
It’s Five Minute Friday. The word is here. Here’s how to play:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back to Lisa-Jo’s site 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...
Here I sit, again, blank screen in front of me. There has been a lot of that lately. And yet, I’ve been writing up a storm. My brain has added a new tab (like I needed something else to do in my mind).
I’ve been writing on paper; in my notebook. I’ve been preparing my thoughts for a presentation; a presentation at church this Sunday. Preparing is a strange way of saying it. I have more or less been corralling my thoughts; bringing them together on paper and then on screen; making sense of them and forcing them out of my head. And this time, I’m not just releasing my thoughts to readers. I’m releasing them to listeners. I’m going to stand in front of the congregation on Sunday and talk about my faith. I’m scared. There is no doubt about it. The idea terrifies me. But I’ve been practising and working on it and praying and I know it will be OK when I get up there, in front of everyone and look out at the listeners waiting for me to speak. I will know that I am here.
Now it’s your turn. GO!
