It's that time of week... Five Minute Friday, and while I don't really feel like writing. This exercise always pushes me to try... even if it's five minutes of nothing! You should try it, it's exhilarating!
This week is all about Dance. and that kinda leaves me blank... cause I'm a good Baptist where Dance is a four letter word... :) But, I'd like to give it a go, anyway!!
The Dance of a writer
I'd like to think I'm a writer. Back in March, I declared it. Jeff Goins encourages all of us to write. But something is holding me back... fear, laziness, distractions, inexperience. I try and get interupted. I sit down and my mind goes blank.
I think, where did this come from, this urge to write? It sure wasn't something I've had all my life. Even journalling is a battle for me; I start, I stop, I try, I give up... and then I try again. My half finished journals mock me and I think, Is it worth it to try again?
And then I think about taking a college course on writing and I get excited... and then the possibility of attending Allume through the generous gift of another becomes a reality and I think.
Yes, I can dance! Yes, I can write! Yes, I am an artist!
Yes and Yes and Yes! When I fall, I will get back up again.... and dance!
