It's been 3 weeks since I've posted... or even written anything. But when you are trying to get started again, sometimes five minutes is all you can handle, and it's better than nothing... so here is my #fiveminutefriday.
It seems I've lost my rhythm. It's been hiding for a while but I was in denial. I even took a blogging/social media break in an attempt to find it... but you know what???
I was too lazy to search it out. I procrastinated and found other distractions. I read more, but useless fiction reading; and I still refused to pick up the pen and write--not for fifteen minutes, not even for five.
It's not that I have nothing to say, it's that I wasn't willing to take the risk. I was going to avoid it today, too, even though I just read a post yesterday on How to Stop Procrastinating. But my dear friend, Crystal Stine, gave me a kick in the pants and I started the timer and pulled out my writing journal and a pen.
and the rhythm of my pen on paper just happened. nothing profound, nothing spiritual deep, just my words out on paper.
The rhythm may disappear for another week or the words could flow every day, but there is something about the encouragement from a friend that can help my find my rhythm.
So get out there and encourage someone to find their rhythm today!!!
