Partnering up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday, where we write, unedited, for five minutes on a given prompt. This week: WRITE.
Do I think of myself as a writer?
Do I think of myself as a blogger?
Not really. Other than the fact that I claim a spot on Blogger.
But do I feel comfortable expressing my thoughts and sharing my heart through writing?
Oh, heavens yes.
I can be a talker. Just ask my husband. Or any of my sisters. Or my friends. Or my students. I am a teacher, so by nature, I am a talker.
I'm also a speaker. Give me a podium and a room of 100 people, and watch me shine.
But do I feel comfortable walking into a party where I only know the host? Especially if I'm by myself?
Oh, heavens no.
I'm glad to have an outlet where I am able to write. Whether people read my writing or not is....well, I'd like to say it's irrelevant. But the truth? I want people to read what I'm writing. I want people to relate to what I'm saying. I want to feel like I belong, like what I'm thinking and feeling isn't unique just to me.
I'm grateful that I can write.
And if you're reading this, I'm grateful, oh so grateful, to you!!
