If you could give some advice to your younger self, what would you say?
This is the question I’m planning to consider here on the blog throughout the month of October.
Many of you will have heard of Write 31 Days, the blogging challenge that has taken place for several years which involves selecting a topic and posting about it each day in October.
While the challenge is not taking place in quite the same format this year, the Five Minute Friday community is hosting a similar challenge – 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes.
A prompt word is provided for each day of October, and the idea is to write on it for five minutes.
I have decided to use the prompt words as a starting point for writing a letter to my younger self each day, addressing my words to myself as I turned 18, trying to pass on advice and insights which may have been helpful (and which will hopefully have some value for others too.)
I won’t be sticking strictly to five minutes, but I will be keeping them fairly short. I hope you’ll join me and that you’ll share some of your reflections and insights too.

And I’ll leave you with some musical inspiration for the month ahead!
