Since Wayne’s dad passed away, I have been actively working on paring away the time commitments that detract from my ability to contribute to the family’s bottom line.
For example, I have said several places that I plan to focus more on writing opportunities that are compensated.
The 31 Days of Free Writes October Challenge, though, won’t let me go.
I guess I may say, on November 1, “Well, that was almost two hours of my life that would have been better spent chasing down paid writing opportunities.”
However, I appreciate the Five Minute Friday writing community that led me to this challenge, and honing my writing skills five minutes at a time can only be constructive.
Many of the writers are choosing a specific theme. I tossed that idea around in my head. I could, for example, focus on caregiving as a way to test my idea of writing a book about my caregiving experiences.
I don’t want to be that constrained, though, so for one hour and 55 minutes (over 31 days), readers will just get whatever that prompt inspires that day.
Here are the prompts:
And I’ll come in and link up each day after writing.
(And to those of you who subscribe to my blog, thank you first of all! I am sorry this is going to multiply the number of emails you get from me for a month. Feel free to ignore them and meet me on November 1 when I’ll return to my regularly scheduled weekly programming.)
Wife of one, Mom of two, Friend of many. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
