A lovely lady, Lisa-Jo, at The Gypsy Mama came up with the idea of 5 Minute Fridays, a writing challenge where you are given a prompt word and then write for 5 minutes on whatever the prompt suggests. The basic rules are:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Get a little crazy with encouragement for the five minuter who linked up before you.
This weeks prompt is NEW . . . ready, set, GO!
I am new to 5 Minute Fridays and feeling a little awkward
What can I possibly say in 5 minutes?
I feel apprehensive and shy to put stuff out there
unedited, imperfect, raw.
But I want to be brave, so I dip my toes in the water today.
New mercies every morning,
new moon, new potatoes, newspaper,
funny the things that pop into your mind when you hear a particular word.
I don't eat potatoes
I don't read the newspaper
I do enjoy the new moon
I depend on new mercies every morning.
Being a newcomer is always a little daunting to me
but here it is, I did it.
