31 days of five minute free writes :: 2015 edition {link-up here}

31 Days logo - 2015

It’s time for the 2015 edition of 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes — a writing link-up in conjunction with the annual Write 31 Days Challenge.

31 Days is a collaboration of bloggers around the world who decide to post on their own blogs every single day in the month of October.

All the info you need can be found at: write31days.com

31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes is a “challenge within the challenge,” so to speak — namely, to post on your blog every day in the month of October, but to write each post in only five minutes flat.

It’s like a month long Five Minute Friday party!

Check out last year’s fun by clicking here.

This year, we’ve added a fun twist — it’s called Readers’ Choice Awards, and all of the prompts were selected by votes that YOU provided!

I tallied up the votes and reserved the top five most popular prompts to use as regular Five Minute Friday prompts in October.

In the schedule, when you see “Five Minute Friday,” it means the prompt will be announced on Thursday evening at 10pm EST that week. Check out our weekly Twitter party on Thursday evenings at #fmfparty as we chat before the prompt is released!

The rest of the prompts were randomly selected from a pool of words provided by those who took advantage of the opportunity to vote.

Without further ado, here are the winners of the 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards:
