The word for today’s 5 minute Friday is “write” I have had to ponder this one for a few hours because I wasn’t sure what direction to take: still not absolutely certain, but if I don’t do it now, I’m not sure when I’ll get to it again.
So, here goes!
I love to write. When I was younger, I wrote poetry. In fact when I was in 6th grade I got to read my poem on “Fleas” at the 6th grade graduation ceremony. Maybe I’ll find it one day and post it here…
I have done prayer journals, or regular journals for many years; since the time Shane and I have been married for certain. I had a diary when I was a teenager. I blogged for several years at homeschoolblogger, but that fizzled when Facebook came along. A few months ago I decided to resurrect my blog here at WordPress and am loving it!
I’m not certain I’ll ever have a huge following. Honestly, i don’t think I’m that great of a writer. I’m not intriguing or captivating, I just write what is on my heart. I’m not even sure I WANT a huge following…I think my head would get too big and pride would swell into something not very attractive.
Sometimes I get hurt feelings at what other people say about what I write. I want to be liked, but I also like to let “it all hang out” so to speak. I keep things real. I say what’s on my mind, so I’m going to get negative feedback from time to time. God is teaching me through this…
I write on a variety of topics as I have thoughts. Sometimes I write and never publish my thoughts, I just need to get them out of my head.
Writing clears my head so other things can fill up the space.
I LOVE to write!
How about you? Do you love to write? Or is it a chore?
