The Friday Reminder and Prompt for SoCS July 26/14


Can you believe it?  It’s the last Friday in July already! Whatever Friday it is though, Friday means tomorrow is Stream of Consciousness Saturday. It’s been a while since I completely left the subject or the theme of SoCS up to you, so I figure it’s about time. Without further ado, I give you the prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Saturday’s Stream of Consciousness post is, end your post with a question. Extra points if you fit an exclamation mark somewhere in the body of your post.

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. Don’t hesitate to join in!

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!

  23. Reblogged this on Good Lifestyler and commented:
    Here is the prompt for this week’s SoCS, get involved and see all the amazing viewpoints which people have to offer.


  24. Here is my post –
    There are three streams of consciousness going on here which made an interesting piece to write. I did some minor editing (Italics, Bold) just to differentiate but the actual text is raw. I hope you enjoy it.

  30. Ooh, interesting — eager to try this! Also, I too can’t believe July is almost over. Where is the summer going? I feel like it was just yesterday I was making summer plans…now it’s almost halfway over!


  31. Why have I not done this yet??
    Probably because my poor brain is a freight train of unconsciousness! It how I do poetry :/
    I LOVE this Linda – such a very very good thing for us all to do!!!!! YAY! Get the streams flowing 😀


    • Yes! And it’s not too late to get with the program, my dear. You should definitely link up. 😀


      • sigh… moving in 4 days… my stream of conciousness will ikely just go like this – ‘screw it, bugger it, damn it, gosh darn it and **** ** all.’ 😛

        Cant remember – lazy – can I do a poem? Cos I did a nice one last night that just did that pouring thing?


      • …don’ think anyone would believe me though (that’s the thing you see) folk aint gonna read my poems and think – oh look – she just wrote that without editing the hell out of it.
        But some really do happen that way. So I dunno – maybe just do one of those word sketch things (like when I sound drunk or stoned)


  32. A first for me dear 🙂 Do you know how hard it was to not go back and re-read and edit?
