Five Minute Friday: Focus

Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking

Five Minute Friday: Focus


i love fridays. i love that for five minutes i can tune out the world around me and write and think and process.  for five minutes the to do list on my wall doesn't matter and the incessent tuggings for my attention fade quietly into the background.

for five minutes through laughter or tears i can quietly sit and type and think.  five minutes when i can be creative without strings attatched or judgements made.  five minutes when i know i'll get a beautiful comment from someone else offering their encouragement.  five minutes to connect with the world but more importantly to connect with myself.

stop. take a breath. take a moment. think the thoughts. write the words. focus.



  1. Yeah, for five minutes I can ask my sweetheart to watch our little one. I'm so focused on him most of the time these days that I don't do as much writing as I would like. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. He's such a gift...a true miracle! ;) Funny how focused one can be for five minutes!

  2. Love this. It brings me back to why I started doing FMF in the first place. I get stuck fearing what I write won't be good enough. But really I am writing for myself.

  3. Beautiful simple writing! FMF is so refreshing.
    May God bless you my new blog friend. (Nice blog template by the way...)
