Writing for five unedited minutes on the prompt “Blessing” for Five Minute Friday.
I’ve blogged for more than seven years, and I can count many blessings specific to this blogging world.
I’m so excited to write over at Meghan Weyerbacher’s blog today! Here’s a teaser of the post, and please make sure to click on this link and read the rest!
For the past year, I have taken time to write consistently. Inspired by this post about John Grisham writing his books early in the morning before work, I took the challenge to write much more often. Mondays through Saturdays, I got up early and wrote before anyone else in my family was awake.
These early morning hours produced hundreds of blog posts and three self-published books, which led me to thank God for leading me on this diligent path. Yet, as I reflect on the past year, I have more to show for in my character development than in my writing results. I have been stretched, and it’s been good for me. If you haven’t tried writing very consistently before, here are four ways it will stretch you for the better.
Friends, I’m writing my next book, but I will take a short break to recap my top posts of 2016. My blogging friend Deb Wolf inspired this post! I hope you will discover something new in these posts.
I am grateful for all your support, encouragement, and comments in 2016. This is the year I finally got serious about writing, and I am so thankful! I look forward to interacting more with you in 2017 here on my blog and on my Facebook page.
Let me know which of these 2016 posts you like best….
Today I thank God for all the blessings he gave me as a writer and blogger in 2016. May this prayer, based on Psalm 118, bless and inspire you!
Today I give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his faithful love endures forever.
