Five Minute Friday: Roar

Today we gather in one place and write on one topic.  We set out collective timers for five minutes, and we marvel at the beauty of the writing more diverse than colors on the spectrum.

Would you like to join?  Here are the rules:

    1. Write for 5 minutes flat – don’t edit; don’t second-guess.
    2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
    3. Must: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:

My voice.  My roar.  When needed, my most powerful tool.  Hear it and be inspired.


Be inspired and empowered today.  Go read what others have to say, and make a statement of your own.
