The Friday Reminder and Prompt for SoCS April 26/14


Hey there! Welcome once again to the Friday Prompt in anticipation for tomorrow’s big event: Stream of Consciousness Saturday! Why is it a big event? Because everyone is going to join in this week! Even YOU! Are you ready? Too bad! You’ve got to wait until tomorrow! Haha.

This week I’d like to see what you can do with a question. Ask one in the first sentence or two of your post and then answer it… or not. It’s up to you.

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here at the prompt page in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome Stream of Consciousness post.

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people will come and read your post! The way to ping back, is to just copy and paste the URL of my post somewhere on your post. Then your URL will show up in my comments, for everyone to see. For example, in your post you can copy and paste the following: “This post is part of SoCS: ” The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!

  3. I wrote this a few weeks ago – but feel like it works here, too . . . and it was SoC – no thinking or pondering involved!

    I Might’ve Said Yes

    How did I miss how strong your feelings were?
    Why didn’t you keep in touch?

    Why didn’t you ask me the question you came to ask me?
    Why did you hide how you felt?

    How could you walk away from me, without giving me a clue?
    It was a long time ago, I know . . . but I might have said yes.

    • I tried to comment on your site 6 times, but it didn’t show up. Sorry if it’s there and I just couldn’t see it. This is what I wrote:

    • Yes, the aim is to get everyone to write a stream of consciousness post tomorrow using this prompt:

      This week I’d like to see what you can do with a question. Ask one in the first sentence or two of your post and then answer it… or not. It’s up to you.


  18. Stream of consciousness. I look forward to reading the entries and may even attempt one myself, although it is rather terrifying: the idea of sharing something without editing it first 🙂
