Five Minute Friday — Way

Happy Friday! Time for this week’s installment of Five Minute Friday … on time!

I cherish this exercise. which gives me a chance to shut off the world and focus on a specific word prompt. It gives my mind a chance to ponder the word and send the thoughts cascading through my fingers onto the screen for all to see. But the best part is visiting Kate’s place on Facebook at http://www.fiveminutefriday.com and join with others in our special community of writers. It’s always exciting — and often informative — to see how my fellow FMF friends develop their thoughts in a variety of different genres. If you get a chance, stop by.

I’ve been sharing snippets taken from Five Minute Friday: A Collection of Stories Written in Five Minutes Flat. They are a testament to the value of the exercise. This week, I’ll share some perspective from Helen who I hope inspires you to check us out … and maybe join in?

“I’ll always have a place in my heart for FMF; it — and the wonderful community surrounding it — *literally* brought me safely through a very, very tough time in my personal life; I re-found amongst the FMF community, the joy and beauty of life and I’ll always be thankful for that. I’m constantly amazed by the quality of the writing from the FMF community and the breadth of ideas presented; every Friday, raeding everyone’s posts, is like a workout for my soul. It’s one of my favorite parts of the week.”

This week’s challenge is WAY. My thoughts are short. The timer is set for five minutes so let’s GO …

Way to go …

Finding my way home …

Going away …

Way too easy {or tough} …

Ways and means …

19 Westview Way …

Way of life …

That’s the way it goes …

On the way …

No way …

A pleasant way …

The way he dressed …

My way …

By the way …

Step this way …

The way it happened …

This way …

That way …

The easiest way …

Out of the way… STOP

I am the W3ay …

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Hug everyone you can and hug often.
