Gypsy Mama. We are given a one word writing prompt and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for today is: WRITE.
I've been writing for years. It began as a young girl as I wrote in my diary with the tiny gold key. I hid it under my window seat in my bedroom. It was where I could pour out my thoughts and feelings with no one watching or listening. Just me (and God).
I was chosen to attend a creative writing class during a summer between the fifth and sixth grades. Each day we had to write and stand up and read to our class. It was a wonderful learning experience for me to receive feedback.
For years I got so busy living life that I almost forgot about writing. But then one day I purchased a journal and began to write once again.
I wrote about my everyday experiences when I was working with heart disease patients. I walked with many families who lost their loved ones. I didn't want to forget their stories so ...I wrote them down.
As I grew in my faith, I was learning and growing by leaps and bounds. I couldn't get enough of Bible studies and Christian books. So I wrote down what I was learning.
I discovered blogging back in 2007 and have been writing on Heart Choices since that time. I love writing. I will continue writing.
Blessings and love,
