I participate in Five Minute Friday. Set the timer for 5 minutes and freewrite with the word provided. Find the link up here.
Set the timer and GO!
I offer myself to the world and subject myself to rejection or acceptance.
I offer my writing to publishers.
I offer my writing to my blog readers.
I offer my writing to other readers and critique partners.
I offer bids to people to connect with them. (If you don’t know what I am referring to here is an article)
I offer extensions of friendship.
I offer words to the world and some are rehearsed and some are not.
I offer honest feedback and advice to my friends and coworkers when they ask for it.
I have learned to protect myself as I often do not think as others do. I am “no nonsense” as a colleague put it. I would rather be respected than liked – 360 days out of the year that is.
I recognize people do things different ways and that is ok. I just don’t want them to try to impose their thinking on me if we aren’t friends or I didn’t ask. I do not ask questions I do not want the answers to.
I offer my true self to people…sometimes.
