Today’s Prompt: Invite
Start- 5 minutes.
Invite others to write along with me?
Today’s writing prompt from #FiveMinuteFriday is INVITE.
Kate also placed a little challenge for us.
To invite others along.
As writers, we like to hide behind our screens and characters.
Am I right?
But, as writers, we’re all about connecting with people too.
So, what if you asked another writer or someone who says “I’m not a writer” into your space?
I didn’t want to talk myself out of it so I placed a public call to people on my FB page. (personal)
I’ll probably send a few email invites later today as well.
Business-wise, I’m all for inviting others to write on my blog.
I know lots of very talented and knowledgeable people.
But, this space, My Place of Hope, it’s my place.
The place I don’t hold back.
The place I am most ME.
Inviting people into this space, this domain, it is challenging.
I need to be challenged.
I need more PEOPLE in my life.
You probably don’t know this but I’ve probably spent a total of 40 – 70 days outside of my home in the last 3 years.
It’s crazy writing that out.
I fear going out.
The only time I go out is when I have something to do.
Taking son 2 to his teacher meetings.
Nothing “fun” per se only the required amount of human interaction.
God placed me, this lonely person, this person afraid of people, inside a family.
That alone is a magnificent blessing.
I feel God preparing me for something.
It could be something painful or something wonderful, I don’t know which.
But, one of the things I know for certain, he’s calling me to share more of ME.
He’s calling me to people.
