This week I'm going to switch it up. I came across this from the Midwest Farm Girl and thought it would be a fun idea. It is a link up with Lisa-Jo Baker's blog. Don't worry I'll probably switch back and forth between my Friday topics.
Here is the prompt:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back to her website and invite others to join in.
3. Be generous and leave an encouraging comment for the person who linked up before you. That’s the best part about this community.
This weeks topic is : Imagine
It's 1:00 in the morning thunder rolling in the distance and a gentle shower hitting the roof above your head. It is the quiet lullaby that would normally sooth me to sleep. But instead tonight I lay awake snuggled in my warm bed with a new book. I'm ready to delve in and just get lost in the story. This one like many others takes place in the 1800's. It is about a young woman who tries to become the town matchmaker and sends off for mail order brides for all of the bachelors in the town of Poetry, Texas. The rain quits and it is now just pure uninterrupted silence. This takes me back to many nights in the past. Lying awake for hours upon end just reading when I should be sleeping knowing that I would have to get up early for school. But I don't care because this is my happy place.
