I’m joining with Lisa Jo from “The Gypsy Mama” for 5 Minute Friday…Rules are as follows…

  1. Write your heart out for five minutes and show us what you’ve got.
  2. Tell your readers you’re linking up here and invite them to play along.
  3. And most importantly, go visit, read, and encourage the fellow five-minuter who linked up right before you.


If I knew I could, I would simply pull out of everything else I’m involved with and just write.  I would outline that book proposal that’s been floating around in my head lately and I would have an uninterrupted chunk of time to finish a complete thought on this and jot some things down instead of the twenty minutes I have before I have to go pick someone up or drop someone off.

I would write said proposal and begin submissions to agents so I could get some experience with this fickle process before I attend “She Speaks” this summer.  I would face the fear of rejection because I know there will be plenty of it and I would just do it because I know if I don’t I will always wonder if I should have.  Not to mention the fact that I want to teach my children to go for it as well – how on earth will we ever know if we don’t put ourselves out there and try?

If I knew I could I would simply grant myself the gift of time – time to simply just mother, just wife, and just write but God has called me to something else at this time and out of obedience, I serve; however, my heart’s desire is to simply just write.
