I’ve had a bit of writing anxiety lately which has caused me to literally avoid looking at my lap top. (Out of sight. Out of mind. Or so I thought.) I’ve found though, that writing is a part of who I am and I really miss it, so…. I have decided to join in on the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes at http://www.fiveminutefriday.com
Each day in October I’ll write for five minutes on a given prompt. This is mostly an unedited style of writing that I’m sure will challenge this “recovering perfectionist”; but hopefully in a good way! Please pray that I won’t quit, I’ll have fun, and that I’ll learn more about myself, writing, and my relationship with God. I’d love for you to follow along with me on this journey! Better yet, join in!
Time starts now!
Today is the first day I’m joining my dear friend, Robin in leading an after school Author’s Club at our local Elementary School! We hope to create an enthusiasm for writing through literature, art, and well…..writing! It’s exciting and inspiring to watch young students discover their own creative side!
With this on my mind, I happened to look out my window and in that small rectangular opening to the outside world I was amazed at all that God had created! Within the parameters of my view I saw plants, bees, spider webs, birds, the breeze, and a sliver of blue sky. All these creations working together just as God designed them to be and do!
You and I were also created to be and do. It’s my prayer that just as our students will put together skills they’ve been given and nature works in harmony to accomplish what it has been created to do; you and I will pursue the purposes we have. If we can do that, just think of all the ways God can use us to create a better world!
