Set a timer and set your fingers free. Let them fly over the keyboard, or maybe scroll across an empty journal page. Words and sentences weaving into a brand new creation.
Every Friday for years, hundreds of people have joined an online writing flash mob called Five Minute Friday – a community of word lovers who throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right.
These are their stories. One shared prompt. Five unedited minutes.
They silence the inner critic and write like we used to run as kids – with abandon and delight, not caring what anyone else thinks. It’s like free therapy.
Everyone is welcome: bit.ly/fiveminutesfriday
Because if you only have five minutes to write, don’t spend them defeated. Spend them writing.
