Sound of blogging

This post was started on 8/31/12 – 8 days ago- I found out that the challenge does not include the write for five minutes option. I was confused and saddened. Then I slipped into the dark writers abysses of self-doubt and an inability to write. Life took over and it was easy to slip away.

BUT I’M BACK…………..

I have a wonderful daily journal from One Spirit that I love.  Each month has a suggested thought for the month- September said Start Again. Raw talent is nothing without drive and dedication. Sometimes all that keeps us from succeeding is laziness. So dear readers, I start again. The following is the draft I saved. I really like the five minute writing and might do it anyway. I have missed you.

This weeks writing challenge is the sound of blogging. Now as you may remember, you write for five minutes and quit- no rewrite. I know not to compare myself to others but mine seem so short. Do I think slowly or type slowly? Well I am sure about the typing slowly although it has gotten a great deal faster since I started blogging. It occurs to me the sound of blogging is the click of keys. Anyway here is this weeks Friday Five. Why don’t you join in? It is from WordPress Daily Post.

The sound of blogging

Can you hear silence? Can you see the wind? Can you hear the gulls cry when the beach is in your mind? Yes yes yes. The question is the sound of blogging- sometimes it is soft and babbling like the stream just flowing along. At other times it is like a rock rolling down a hill bouncing of rocks and trees and other obstacles. Every once in a while it sound like the wind during a fierce storm ,loud and strong pushing me along. Often I write in the early morning, so most to me it sounds like the early morning birds singing in the new day. Lastly , blogging sounds like a hug.

    Love your words and your interpretation.

    Um, I think you get more than five minutes to write out your post, so you may want to check into this rule. I may be wrong so ignore me if so. There is a Five Minute Friday with Gypsy Mama and you simply write for five minutes…no editing…just raw writing at its best.
    Well, thank you! 🙂


    1. Since I tend to be fairly literal, I found this challenge harder than most. The wonderful thing about the short write is words just come out without thinking about them. I am going to do it more often and then edit and expand. We will see. Thanks for commenting.
