Fridays are for writing ...

... so let's get to it!

Sorry I've been MIA for a couple weeks - been fighting some germs here in the nest.  But God is still good, and He's still allowed to define what is good for me.  I've felt lonely and weary, but those are just feelings.  The truth is, I have the precious gifts of a loving family and caring friends, and the Lord has been my strength when I was weak ... He gets some of the best glory that way!

For your writing prompt (since it's been my preoccupation lately):

Write an article, short story, or poem about the most contagious thing on earth.

Begin with a 15-minute freewrite, and continue as you have time to edit and/or finish.  Please post it in the comments section here if you're feeling courage, because as Cynthia Ozick says,

"If we had to say what writing is, we would define it essentially as an act of courage."                       (in a FANTASTIC book I recently finished called Writing with Style by John R. Trimble)
