Welcome to Five Minute Friday!


My name is Kate Motaung, and it’s my great pleasure to host the Five Minute Friday community.

I dare you to find a more caring, compassionate group of bloggers who gather to support each other online. These writers amaze me.

I see this work as a ministry, and it is such a privilege to be able to use this space to encourage and equip Christian writers.

The main feature of Five Minute Friday is our weekly blog link-up. Each week I provide a one-word prompt, and we all set our timers and write for five minutes flat, then post our writing on our respective blogs and link up our offerings on that week’s Five Minute Friday post. Click here to learn more about how the link-up works.

We also offer articles on how to strengthen your writing craft, as well as courses to guide you in developing new skills related to the writing life.

I’ve also developed a Start-Up Guide for Online Writers, which I hope will be a blessing to anyone who wants to take the next step in their writing life.

Here at Five Minute Friday we also provide a list of writing resources that you might find beneficial as you continue to progress through your journey as a Christian writer.

If you’d like to know more about me personally, feel free to visit my blog or pick up a copy of my memoir, A Place to Land: A Story of Longing and Belonging (affiliate link).
