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..
The word of the week is focus and I just can’t seem to. Not after the last hour and a half. It’s just crazy to me.
A casual comment to a new bloggy friend one night about a Five Minute Friday “date” as we wait for the prompt. So we tweet and catch up on our weeks as we wait and a few other friends join us as the weeks go by.
Then my new friend sends in our story to Lisa Jo and invites others to join us on our date night. I jokingly tell her that we will need a hashtag for our new party.
So we started three weeks ago meeting with fellow writers for our weekly date night using #fmfparty to link us all together.
We trended on Twitter tonight y’all. That is a lot of tweets. They were just flying by on the screen. I totally couldn’t keep my focus, but I couldn’t walk away either.
The Lord never ceases to amaze me. How faithful he is to use something as silly as Twitter and a hashtag to bring so many people together for encouragement and fellowship. Again, He turns my focus to Him in praise.
