Five Minute Friday: Write

I’m joining Lisa-Jo Baker and a bunch of other profound bloggers for:

Five Minute Friday

Start
When I was a little girl I would write stories… I once attempted to write a novel… I may have gotten 3 chapters in and abandoned the project.

When I was a teenager I wrote dark poetry… in fact a poem that I titled “Death” made it into the book that my school published.

Thankfully I grew out of that dark time… and now I write because the questions need a place to live… I write because my thoughts need an avenue to stroll… I write because sometimes its a better idea than telling that person face to face.

I read the writing of others… I read to expand my thoughts… to relate to others… to adopt tidbits of others ideas… to change my life… because that’s what writing does for me… mine and others.

Its therapy… it is calm… it is emotional… it is connection… it is community.
Stop

  2. Ah, Sarah … YES! Those 'questions need a place to live.' To marinate, to be handled and sorted and sat with for a spell. And then released to the One who can guide us to answers … maybe not the ones we hoped for, but surely the ones we need.

    So good to meet you!

    I love this: “I write because the questions need a place to live… I write because my thoughts need an avenue to stroll.” What a gift that God grows our ways of writing as he faithfully grows us. Thanks for sharing!
