Taking a moment

This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt (and Day 26 of 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes) is: MOMENT.

This has been such a long, long week. I’m not even quite sure why, except that it was a Two Migraine + Dentist Visit Week. Actually, that’s probably why, right there.

Today I’m not writing for the Write 31 Day Challenge or Five Minute Free Writes because I’m too busy taking a moment, or two moments, or many moments, to read and comment on everyone else’s lovely work. Seriously, have you read what you’ve written? I just love it. I love the community of this challenge. I hope someone picks up the mantle for next year.

So no post today. This post is a figment of my imagination. This is not the post you’re looking for. Move along.

Time to go on virtual walkabout and say hi to everyone.

This blog has been taken over by the 2018 Write 31 Days challenge. Here’s the sweet, sweet index of all my posts of nope.

    HA! I love this! And I use the term “walkabout” all the time. Thank you for reading other people’s blogs. I have often longed to do that. I just can’t seem to wrangle the time. I am, however, doing the 31 day challenge. I have never tried to do it before. It’s hard, but worth it.

      I’m so glad! It was hard, but so cathartic. Sorry I missed this comment – a bunch got stranded in the spam filter, and I don’t understand why.

    Love your no post. I too am taking time to read other’s post. Yours brought a chuckle and smile. Thank you.

    • Jae

      Aw, thank you, Mary. It’s the first time I’ve done anything like this since 2012. It’s been healing. Thank you for swinging by.

    Well done on getting to day 26 of Write 31 Days! You’re nearly there! I’m not taking part this year but I have done it the last two years and I know it can be a challenge! It is good to take a step back from writing for a while and read others’ posts too- that’s always one of my favourite bits about FMF!

    Sorry about the migraines, but I’m glad you took the time to explain why you’re not posting! Hope you’re feeling better!
