Five Minute Friday is so much fun for me. No pressure! Simply a word prompt on twitter (#fmfparty) on Thursday night and then write. No over thinking or editing. There is a linkup on Friday at http://katemotaung.com where we can read other’s five minute free write. This week’s prompt is: ENJOY
Ready, set, go….
So, I have fun news to share with you all. It’s been 2 years since I started this blog. I’m super excited. It’s been such a journey and huge learning experience.
I’ll be honest I have enjoyed certain aspects of it more than others. I love to write and am especially fond of just getting my thoughts on paper. On the other hand, editing is the least enjoyable part of the process for me.
Yet for some reason I can get caught up editing as I write which completely kills the flow. I’ve heard it so many times not to edit as I go but I find that extremely difficult. I think that’s why I enjoy the Five Minute Friday free writes so much. It’s right up my alley!
I always want to give my best in everything I do. That includes writing and blogging. But it feels like there’s a huge learning curve and just when I feel like I’m getting it figured out something changes again.
So when frustration tries to creep in I remember that everything I do, including this blog, is for God’s glory!

I love to celebrate. I love to write. I also really love Christmas. So it’s a perfect time to throw a party, right? Will you join me over the next month as we celebrate 2 years of this blogging and writing journey?
Watch for the party to kick off and get started Thanksgiving week.

Happy anniversary, Laura! What year did you go to she speaks, btw? I was there this past summer of 2016. So glad you’re enjoying the writing journey. It’s a challenging road indeed, but I’m so glad you took the leap. An #fmfparty friend in spot #36:)
Thanks Christina! I went in 2015. I’m so glad I went and praying about going again this summer. Thanks so much for stopping in.
Visiting from FMF. I enjoyed your post, Laura : ) Congratulations on your blog anniversary! That’s exciting! I don’t always enjoy the writing process either. Sometimes I get stuck in it and never publish a post. I find if I type revision notes to myself in all caps while I’m writing my first draft, it helps me to just write and not get stuck editing. Have a happy anniversary this month!
Thank you! Great suggestion as well.
Congrats on your blogging anniversary!
