A few days ago as I made my way home from the longest seven months of my life, I came close enough to shore to get just enough of a phone signal to discover that I had been featured on the Friday Phrases! website. The post featured a poem I wrote especially for the weekly Friday Phrase (#FP) event the week prior. I was thrilled and humbled to find my work featured and shared for all to see.
Friday Phrases has become my favorite event on Twitter. Not only does it serve as a personal form of therapy, but it has also challenged me as a writer. Having only 137 characters to create literary art and imagery has taught me how to selectively paint a portrait with only a few powerful brushstrokes. My writing style has improved immensely since engaging in the weekly #FP Twitter event, and I am grateful for that.
