2017 FMF Free Writes on Faith

This is my forth year linking up with the 31 day challenge.  No, not here at The Playground, at my former blog home. My efforts were slim last year but I did give it a try.  Because it’s a challenge, I’m guessing it counts.  I’m busy again this year, busier even if I can be. That’s  why, in part, I’ve decided to use the prompts at Five Minute Friday.

Write 31 Days prompts - 2017

I’ll use the prompts and write about things of Christian faith.  It’s a free writing exercise, so I’m not exactly sure where it’ll end up.  Except to say that I will tie each post to a hymn of the faith.  A hymn that has words of encouragement related to the post.  Sometimes I might add part of the story of the hymn, or something about the author, but my main goal for doing this is to remember some awesome hymns of the past.

I can be quite wordy, but am convinced that good writing involves fewer words with greater meaning.  I’m determined to pare my words down.   I think this challenge will be good for learning that skill.  I will do my very best to adhere to 5 minutes and in situations where I just can’t, I will mark my ending place.  I probably won’t go back to add pictures.  I might add a click to tweet or to quote Scripture.  Mostly I’m determined to go back to Lisa-Jo’s initial premise; set a timer and write for5 minutes, no edits, no re-writes and STOP when the timer goes off.  Short and sweet.

When the challenge begins, you’ll be able to click below for each day’s post.
