I’m back for another Five Minute Friday….on Sunday…better late than never as I always say. So the last time I did Five Minute Friday the word was WRITE and this week the word is WRITER..I guess I like these W words 🙂
When I was younger I used to write for fun. My friends and I were very into writing plays. My grandmother LOVED plays. Every Christmas she would have us perform plays for our family/friends. She was a storyteller for sure (and we wonder where all the grandkids get it from). I remember one vacation we took involved a lot of time in the car. This was back in the day before we all had a million gadgets to keep us occupied and we had to do this thing called TALKING to each other (imagine that)! On this trip we all made up stories to tell each other and to this day 20 years later we STILL talk about the stories we made up.
One thing I learned from her and over the years is that we are all WRITERS. We all have a story to tell. I know there are many people that think they aren’t good writers but that doesn’t mean you aren’t a writer. We’re all writers that God planted on this earth to share our story. Some stories are better shared through paintings, sketching, podcasting, video, or voice. I don’t care what medium you use just find one and share it! Or tell your story to a writer and have them write it down for you (I read a book that was written this way).
When the trailer for this years inRL came out I got really excited for the event because I LOVE this years theme. This years theme is awesome for everyone! It’s all about sharing YOUR story with the world.
Now head over to Lisa Jo Baker’s Blog and read all the other awesome Five Minute Friday Posts!

I love the idea that we are all writers. That we all have a story to tell. I’m studying to get my master’s in Psychology, and I think this idea is why I’m so drawn to narrative therapy, all about using each person’s story.
