Book party! We’re celebrating the release of the Five Minute Friday book. This is a marvelous compilation of past and present Five Minute Friday free writes (yes, I’m in there too). Proceeds benefit two ministries in South Africa: The Vine School in Cape Town, and The Ten Dollar Tribe.
What could be better than a buying a book to be a force for good?
I’m so proud of my friends for making the world more beautiful and honest with their words.
Now it’s time for Five Minute Friday. I can’t think of a better way to cheer my fellow writing peeps than with a poem (sheepish grin). COLLECT is our word.
Collect me a thousand voices
Calling to the world
Of story, roses, rain, and Jesus,
An open door to evermore.
Every word a pinprick in my hand
Stretched out open wide
Pain and glory bleeding beautiful
Close the window, wash hands, pipes collecting morning’s tide.
Don’t Miss the Madness
31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes starts Oct. 1! (And I still don’t have a proper title for mine.) What’s yours?
P.S. Here’s my favorite quote from the book.
“We threw caution to the wind and we wrote our guts out.” ~@lisajobaker, #FMFbook Tweet This
That’s what it’s all about.
