Five Minute Friday: DONE

It's Five Minute Friday when I join with a group of writers. We receive a one-word prompt, and then we have only five minutes to write. Our word for today is DONE.


What goes through my mind when I think of the word DONE is how many projects I have going and still not finished. I'm the type of person who juggles many things at once. I typically read three books at a time.

Last summer I was so excited as I finally completed writing the book I've been working on for several years. I sent it to an editor, and it was such a relief. Little did I realize how much time the edits and all the rewrites take. I continue to work on it. I'm almost DONE!

At the same time, I'm working on another project. Since 2010, I collected funny things my preschool students say. I wrote them on a scrap of paper and threw them into a jar on my desk. I finally began organizing them and adding a narrative about listening to what your children are saying. It's been a fun project, and in the course of it, I've been learning InDesign, an Adobe product.

My husband surprised me with a new camera this summer. I would like to say I finished the tutorials but I'm still learning and practicing. I realize that I am not DONE with most things in my life.

Each project I begin seems to open up new ideas, and my list gets longer with all I want to learn. But then I remember that I'm a life-long learner!


Blessings and love,

  1. What a great write up on the word. I love that you are not done with most of your projects. It not only keeps your interest and your mind going but like with most things in life, projects and living and breathing and are almost always never done.

  2. Love this! And yes you are involved in many projects, and probably many more you haven't listed. As they say, a woman's work is NEVER done. Enjoyed your post, intrigued about the jar with the preschool students words of wisdom. ♥

  3. Debbie, I honestly don't ever want to be "done" until God says so! I love the process.

  4. I'm the same- I always seem to have lots of things on the go. And as soon as something is done I will start something else! I love the idea of collecting and compiling the children's comments- that sounds like a lot of fun! Visiting from FMF #7.

  5. I have too many things going and hard to complete any of them. It's been too long since I've stopped by. Hope you are doing well!

  6. I love the word DONE and feel such a sense of accomplishment when I am done with something, mission accomplished. I think we all probably have several "undone" projects still waiting. Good post Debbie!


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
