31 (or really 28) days of five minute free writes

31 days button

Ever since my first “Five Minute Friday” post on July 26, 2013, I’ve been hooked on the five-minute free writes hosted first by Lisa Jo Baker, and then more recently by Kate Motaung. (You can read all of my Five Minute Friday posts thus far here.) It’s an encouraging writing community to link up with, and it’s a good exercise in writing. The idea is five minutes of unedited free-write on a given topic.

This year, I’ve taken Kate’s challenge to join with The Nester’s 31-days challenge by doing 31 days of five-minute free writes in October. Here goes!

[I will be adding links to each day when the post goes live.]
