Five Minute Friday: Write - My 50th Post!

Joining with Five Minute Friday sponsored by Lisa-Jo Baker. On Friday, Lisa-Jo posts a one word prompt and for five minutes even we write what the prompt brings to mind. No rewrite, nor editing just letting the words flow. 

Note: I didn't know until after I finished and hit the publish button that this post about writing is my 50th published post. So today in line with this month's theme of 'Celebrating You!' I am going to celebrate ME by taking myself out to breakfast later in the morning! :) 

Five Minute Friday

Today's Prompt: Write 
I love words.
I love to write words down.
I love to write words down so much that for a long, long time 
I stopped writing.
My life became too busy and too complicated.
I had too little time for too many things.
Instead of starting to write only to have to stop before I could finish 
I just didn’t start. 
I feel the pressure of unwritten words build up in my soul like water builds up behind a dam. 
I wonder...
Is it aching happiness I feel when the dam breaks?
Or is it glorious terror as words rush from me in waves until instead of too few words 
I almost have too many.


  1. Cassandra, thanks for sharing this beautiful visual of what my friend and I talked about just today at lunch...that overwhelming love of writing, but the busyness that holds it back like a dam. She and I are both making room for it in our lives again, because, in your words, it is "aching happiness" when they flow. Beautiful, just beautiful thoughts on "write." Love it!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Adrienne.

      I think all writers feel the aching happiness and the glorious terror as the words flow. Loving to write can be a wonderful terrible thing sometimes. But how many of us would give it up completely? Not of us. :)

      Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. oh my. When that dam breaks... let them come, fierce and fast, honest and wild. THose are the best writes. So glad I stumbled over here from Lisa-Jo's place. Beautiful words, new friend.

    1. Thank you so much Kris! Yes, those are the best writes. :)

  3. I have totally felt this way - far too much to say to even know where to start! Thanks for sharing!

    1. When it gets like that I'm almost afraid to 'pick up the pen' because I'm afraid I might not be able to put it down!

      Thanks for coming by Michelle!
