Five Minute Friday: Write!

Today, I am joining Five-Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker. In case you don’t know, this is an opportunity to just write, unedited, free, for five minutes flat. Ironically, the prompt today is: “write.” 

GO: 

Write

 Our professor this week said that writers have power. Power to share thoughts and ideas, to influence others.

A scary notion, a huge notion. 

I remember the pen on the lined paper in the 4th grade classroom, writing a poem for the first time, at least the first time I remember. I was told that my poem was good, and in my 4th grade mind and heart, I beamed with pride. I kept writing on my own. Little silly vignettes about girls named Jessica and Carrie. I never showed them to anyone, but I enjoyed it all the same.

I still write. From the pen on paper to the computer screen, typing in the words in black and white. These words are posted for anyone to see. There is power in the wielding of words.

I now write what seems to be inside of me, things I cannot keep in the silence of my journal. 

STOP.

And there you have it.Image
