16 Mar Five Minute Friday: Brave
It’s Friday again. Glory be! Today I join The Gypsy Mama to write for five minutes on her weekly prompt. No editing or rewriting allowed. Click on the link to her site if you want to try it, too. The prompt this week is “Brave”.
I sit on the porch, my laptop on my knees. The “Sid book” as I so lovingly have called it for the past–ahem–many years, is now behind me. At least the creation of it is behind me. And so I must embark on a new adventure. I’ve been so wrapped up these past weeks with the “business” end of things, and with blog posts, that I haven’t connected with my muse. I haven’t been tapping my creativity.
So I place my fingers on the keyboard and wonder if it can happen again. This strange connection between soul and fingertips. Words flowing straight from the heart. I let it come in waves, slowly at first, then faster. In this quiet place where friends gather and the Creator is close to guide me. I lift a grateful heart as I become part of the process once again. A new Work in Progress has begun. Yes!
Now you know why I’ve been MIA for over a week! I went to Wimberley, Texas (near Austin) for a writing retreat with my dear old writing group. It was everything I was longing for. I may post more about that later, with photos. Have a wonderful Friday, dear readers.
