Ten Minutes

Ten minutes.

I have committed to writing for ten minutes.  No more, no less.

We'll see how it goes.

It used to be that I wrote something every day.  Well, almost every day.  I was diligent about writing. I wrote about most anything.

Nowadays I find it hard to write about anything at all.

And then I saw the challenge.

Ten minutes, it said.  Do it for ten minutes.  Write whatever comes to mind, no matter how inane it sounds, no matter if it has purpose, no matter if you want to or not. Make a commitment. Just START.

I recently helped out with a Financial Peace University class, and at the end of the class the leader gave me a book written by Jon Acuff.  She had an idea that I needed to do something, that I wanted to do something, but I was getting in the way of it all.

The book?

I wonder how she knew?

And so here I am, starting over again.  Desperately hoping that my inactivity, my reticence, my fear of not doing it right, my frozen fingers, will all disappear.

I want to start.

And with that, my ten minutes are up.
