Remember Five Minutes

1. Write for 5 minutes flat with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing. (I still struggle with this.)

2. Link back to?the Gypsy Mama and invite others to join in. ?(The button code can be found in the side bar on her site.)

3.?Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words meant to you.

Today?s prompt is Remember.


Remember Five MinutesI almost didn’t remember. ?I think I may have the flu or something because my body aches and my head feels full. ?No yuckiness to report, but it is making it hard to function. ?Today is my husband’s birthday. ?I said happy birthday to him as he was going out the door, but I don’t think he heard me. ?So I posted it on his facebook. ?We don’t engage much via social media. ?Most of our talking is in person, as it should be. ?Today is Friday. ?I almost didn’t remember that. ?I wanted to write for five minute friday so much though. ?Plus Im doing the nanowrimo thing. ?I’m doing great on that front. ?Well, I was until this. ?Not feeling so well today. ?it’s been coming for a while. since monday for sure. ?I need to go to the grocery story. ?Double coupons has me a little excited. ?And this is my life now. ?Do I remember a time before all this? ?Not really, and yes. ?Once I was different. ?Odd that my post over at is about remembering my first reading of Sense and Sensibility. ?Odd, yet perfect.

    Veronica, I like the stream-of-consciousness in your writing! There’s freedom in just sharing what daily life looks like, isn’t there? You’ve reminded me that it’s more than okay to write about the regular, the mundane, the normal . . . and that there’s a good story within it. (And hope the fog lifts and you feel better soon!)

      Thank you. I’m just me. An average human. Some times I can be profound. Mostly I’m just living my life like most people, and taking notes hoping to learn something in this life, about this life. It’s good to be in the moment, where life happens. It isn’t always glamorous or interesting to others, but I’m glad you stopped by.
