Five Minute Writing Workshop

*This is my weekly writing whatever is in your head for 5 minutes post...

I remember the first time I heard your voice but not the first time I actually saw you. I remember that I wasn't your biggest fan. I thought you were over confident and bolshy. The next time I heard of you was when I saw your name on the attendee list of a course that I was running and my heart sank. I honestly wasn't sure how I would be able to handle you for an entire day let alone in a training situation.

When I'm unsure of a situation that I'm in, I automatically default to the middle class voice and ultra professionalism. It turned out that all of that was unnecessary because to quote Bridge Jones 'you like me just the way I am' and were a pussycat in my professional hands!!

That was the turning point I guess and we often stopped for a chat, at least until those chats started turning into something more........


I would definitely recommend that you try this whether you have a blog or not. Five minutes of writing without thinking, no judgment, no topic prompts, just anything that falls out of your head.....I'm actually finding it extremely therapeutic.....leave me a comment if you publish yours and I'll make sure to pop over and read it :-)
