1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
A newborn baby’s first task is to find his mother’s breast and nurse. To reconnect with her. This desire for connection starts there and only grows as we age.
We long to have a friend group to feel connected at school.
We look for that special someone we share a connection with to commit our lives to.
We get the right job and build our connections to grow our career.
We update our Facebook and send out tweets. All to stay connected.
We write to connect with our readers. What joy when someone comments saying they can relate or the actually “got” our message when no one else did.
We are giddy in anticipation of connecting in real life with our online friends.
Many different avenues of connection. Many different depths of connection. Many different outcomes from connection.
But in the end, I think it’s what we all really want–to be connected, heard, understood, loved.
