I am very new at this five minute writing. I’ll get into the fling of it very soon.
My goal for the month of October is to write on personal experiences in a new country that I can call my home by now after 6 years.
The challenge is to write for five minutes on a topic without stopping. No corrections, just straight as it is.
Here is my FMFW:
Prompt word: CALLING
The calling to come to New Zealand was at the end of 2008 very clear. I had arranged everything to make a clean move. Since my son moved to NZ in 2005 the calling started. Circumstances in South Africa were deteriorating. As a single, older woman was not very safe to live on my own. I sold my property and had to move into another unit for the two years before I could answer the call from a distant country. Sometimes South Africa still calls me back and I miss my family and friends there.
