My favorite M&M colors in 2021 were (what were yours?):

  • Green
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Brown

But that’s besides the point! You should share your favorites here too.

It could be a top 5 of any variety: books, shows, albums, songs, podcasts, restaurants, friends. Try to include a bit of “you” in it — why do you like it, what did it mean to you, how did it affect you?


  1. Follow this link and click “Start Writing”. (it will prompt you to create a sign-in).
  2. Write! Type out your favorites, and why you like them. The title could be “Tom’s 2021 Favorite Songs”. Here’s an example.
  3. Now comes the collaborative part. Send me your Medium account name so I can add you as a Writer on the “FridaySwell publication”. Once I’ve done so, you can click the 3 dot menu in upper right of your writing and choose “Add to publication” and choose: FridaySwell. (This guide might help)
  4. I’ll receive it, help you edit or add pictures, and then publish it.

I look forward to writing with you!

Deadline? Dec 20th. Late submissions considered if I like at least one thing from your list.

Grateful for such cool water, I’m adding my voice to the world’s pool — ripple or no — because the act of creation itself is healing.
