Excitement welled up inside of me when I learned that the Five Minute Friday writers are having a retreat! Yes, that’s right! When we usually gather together on Fridays where we write for five whole minutes without worrying about getting it just right, NOW we will have the opportunity to meet in person!
The Five Minute Friday community has grown so much, and it is an exciting time as we think of finally meeting up! Taking it from the internet, from our blogs, from our Twitter parties, Facebook, and now live and in person! Wow!
I know I’m not the only one that is checking their schedules, looking at the location and seeing just how far it really is from where they live. Wondering if this is really happening and something that is do-able.
The location, we’ve learned, is just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. The weekend is August 7-9, 2015 with more details to come from Kate. It would be amazing to gather all of the Five Minute Friday writers together for one weekend! I imagine there will be lots of laughter that weekend as well as writing since that is something we all love to do.
Imagine the possibilities of getting all of the writers together. As we gather together, we could share ideas and bounce things off of each other.
With one daughter going into Fifth grade and the other into college in August, I’m not completely sure at this point that I can attend. But, I’ll certainly try! AND I encourage you all to attend as well. If you’ve ever written or been interested in Five Minute Fridays from when Lisa-Jo Baker hosted it and now since Kate has taken over, I encourage you to think of gathering with all of the writers. You will not be disappointed!
This post was most definitely inspired by the prompt word of Gather for this edition of Five Minute Friday at Kate’s virtual house.
