Every Friday, Gypsy Mama has a writing exercise called "Five Minute Friday." Each Friday, she gives a prompt, and you write for just five minutes on that prompt. In her words, "No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real." The main rule is:
"1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking."
This is my first, ever attempt! So please forgive the stream-of-consciousness.
This week's prompt is: Beyond
It's amazing how often things go beyond what we imagine; sometimes, in a better way, and sometimes in a worse way. I guess I mean that sometimes things wildly exceed our expectations, our dreams taking on wings of their own, soaring high, high above us. And sometimes things get much more out of joint--out of sync--than we ever thought possible.
