Friday Five Minute Exercise - Wisdom

1. Set your clocks/timers for Five (5) Minutes.

2. Write about Wisdom. Write about an insight that you gained as a result of a mistake you made in your life. Did you accumulate knowledge that serves your life purpose today? Reflect and write about the enlightenment that occurred. Did the past mistake resurface as wisdom?

Get into as much detail as you can for the next five minutes.

3. Ready?

4. Go.

5. Finished? Review and be amazed.

I hope you had fun. Come back next Friday for a new writing prompt.

Was this exercise helpful?

Did you succeed with this writing exercise? Was it helpful? Were you able to find and write about that moment you became aware of a mistake you made that helped you accumulate knowledge that serves your current life purpose? Did the past mistake resurface as wisdom?

Why or Why Not?


  1. I love this assignment, Vicki! I am going to put it aside for later. The topic is great!

  2. I usually hate specific writing prompts but yours has a lot of room for flex. Visiting from Sharefest. Today my paranormal suspense novel The Mindstalker is free for download from Amazon. Currently the challenge I'm following is Write Fifteen Minutes a Day. I also have a personal goal of writing before which for me is write as soon as I'm home from work without any stops and on the weekend, doing my blog, jump and comment and then write before anything else. So far, it is working. I will pop in again.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and leave a comment.
