What really sets my anger off ... {freewrite Fridays}

Friday is a great day for writing. So let's get to it!

First, how about boosting our vocabulary? Painting with more colors is always a good idea - the more words we know and can use, the more effective we'll be at communicating just what we want to say. You can find more hues like this one at Word of the Day ...

Provenance n. The beginning of something’s existence; something’s origin. The place of origin or earliest known history of something. “An exquisite vase of Chinese provenance.”

And now for one of my favorite quotes about writing:

"We write to taste life twice." - Anais Nin

Next, your freewrite prompt: {Freewriting is unpolished, unedited - just your thoughts as they come and display themselves on the screen or page. Set a timer for 15 minutes, and see what you have. It doesn't have to be long or perfected - just you and the words coming together as you taste life again. Not so sure? Give it a shot, you just might enjoy yourself.}

It was the one thing that had always caused my anger explosions, 
and coming from someone I loved ... 

Go! [Feel free to change the pronouns in the prompt, if needed. Post your piece or a link to your blog (if you're writing there) in the comments section below.]

Finally, a verse to keep us:

 "This is the Message I’ve been set apart to proclaim as preacher, emissary, and teacher. It’s also the cause of all this trouble I’m in. But I have no regrets. I couldn’t be more sure of my ground—the One I’ve trusted in can take care of what he’s trusted me to do right to the end." 2 Timothy 1:11-12 (Msg)
