It has been quite a long time since I've followed the Five Minute Friday prompts; but we have been challenged by Susan Shipe at HopeHeartHome to write on this week's word .
And, since the "write31days" challenge is only a week away, I have decided to accept Susan's challenge, to get into practice for a month's worth of writing! For this year's challenge, I will be following the FMF "free writes" following along with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday writers.
So, here goes my post for this week's word:
Five? And I thought bacon was a hard one in last year's Five Minute Friday free writes for the "write31days" challenge ...
But, it turned out to be one of my favorite prompts!
In fact, when we were invited by Susan Shipe to submit one of our posts for an upcoming book, the post on bacon was the first one I thought about ...
And, here it is! Scheduled to be released on Monday, October 26th; and I have just received my advance copy! How exciting is this?!
I think, perhaps, it took only FIVE days for me to receive this book ... actually, I think it was more like four - I'm stretching it here to get five minutes worth of writing in on this number!!
Growing up, there were five members in my family: my parents, two brothers, and myself. My brothers and I were two years apart; I was the oldest.
When I married my second husband, and we had a child, our family grew from four to five members: my husband and I, my son and daughter from first marriage, and our daughter.
In seven days, I'll be attending a scrapbook retreat; but it will take me at least the five days leading up to the retreat just to get my stuff together! And, then I will have four days to work on several projects, once I figure out what they will be.
I'm stretching it here, but I think I have exceeded my five minute time frame anyway; but, I wrote it!!
Now, won't you check out this amazing weekly challenge with the Five Minute Friday family; and the write31days that is scheduled to begin on October 1st...
Then, be sure to check out the Five Minute Friday book ... You can order one for yourself here.
