Today, I found a new one – Five Minute Friday – that is perfect for where I am right now. It’s a five-minute writing challenge, hosted by The Gypsy Mama, where you:
Write for five minutes straight…
You cannot edit your work.
That’s right…no second-guessing… no laboring for minutes…hours…or even days for the perfect word (yes, you read that right!) – just writing whatever comes out of your mouth, mind, fingertips. It’s freeing…scary…liberating – all at the same time.
It’s a little like Julia Cameron’s Morning Pages, laid bare for all the world to see.
One of my themes for this year is Progress, Not Perfection.
At heart, I’m a raging perfectionist. Unfortunately – I’m not perfect – only God is. So – this year – I’m going to turn over a new leaf… do what I can… as best as I can… and try to keep moving forward.
That’s my five minute take for the day. What’s yours?
