Five Minute Friday - Bare


It's time for the "Five Minute Friday" blogging post. The inspiration comes from Lisa Jo Baker

What you do is set your timer for five minutes and write whatever you want according to the prompt Lisa places on her blog every Friday. Then you go back, link your blog and give support to those who posted before you. And, we connect on Twitter with #FiveMinuteFriday

So, today's prompt word was "BARE".


"I bare my soul every time I put words on paper. The essence of my life streams from my thought to actual words, sentences, paragraphs, until eventually they become stories.

With each word I seek in desperation another slice of my soul is shredded for my reader. I thank God that my soul is self-healing, and his love is all encompassing, otherwise, nothing would be left of me after I completed a book. Thank you, dear God, for letting me lean on you while I pour my bare soul into these books for my readers.

Dear reader, I give my all when I write for you. I hold nothing back. I bare my soul and extend it forward for your taking. My words are your words. My thoughts are your thoughts. My imagination is replaced by your imagination of the world I have created for you."

Until next Friday,

This is beautiful and so true. I'm having such a hard time putting words down as I just returned from Guatemala. I'm heart-broken and longing for those words to share, but I'm definitely bare at the moment.

Alene, thanks for your comment. I know the feeling of writer's block. Do other things you enjoy. The words will return.
