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.
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.
I hope you enjoy!
