Dear Kate and my FMF Writer Community,
THANK YOU so much for these FMF prompts, encouragements, and opportunities over this past year! I have loved the challenge, and I have appreciated how our community comes together each week to read, share, and support one another.
But, thanks to another honest and insightful blogger (who shared how difficult it is to write in five minutes), I recognized that I have not been “playing fairly.” As much as I try to keep the five-minute time allowance, I struggle with allowing my writing to simply “be” without further reflection and editing, and with having too much to say. 😉 For these reasons, I am going to take a leave from Five Minute Friday and write other posts instead. I want to foster the integrity of this writing community – as well as my own.
I WILL be by to read your posts and be in touch! You are forever in my heart.
Thank you, Kate, for your good work. You are a blessing to us all.
(Five Minute Friday is an online writing community. Each week, Kate gives us a one-word prompt and five minutes to write. You may find other posts or add your own at https://fiveminutefriday.com/2021/09/02/fmf-writing-prompt-link-up-city/)
