Write {Five Minute Friday}

Today’s prompt: Write.
Write. It’s good for you, my friend, Ruth Ayres shares, believes, practices.
Her encouraging voice whispers in my head. I can see Elsie, Linda, Christy and my BONS nodding in agreement. Those words sweep away the nagging writing monster in my head quipping, “Your writing isn’t eloquent, not worthy.” Ugh! I hate the fact that I allow that thought to linger, a fight I have often.

But today, the monster is crushed.
Today, the thoughts that have been swirling in my head are being captured by a pen.
Today I write …
and it feels good!

Stop.

I am participating in Five Minute Friday hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker. Will you join me?

  1. oh, I feel this. that constant crush of lies – your writing isn’t good enough – sometimes that makes it so hard to pick up the pen. rejoice in picking up the pen, friend.

    “Today, the thoughts that have been swirling in my head are being captured by a pen.” Love this! And I’m always so glad to read your thoughts.

    Yes, a lot of that going on in my head lately, too, so I’ve decided to just write again!
