The Friday Reminder and Prompt for SoCS March 14/15


Hey! Welcome to your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday! It’s been a while since we last did a fun, nonsensical prompt, so I figured why not let go a bit? We’re almost out of the dead of winter here in North America; time to kick up our heels!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “pat/pet/pit/pot/put.”  Use any, use all or have fun with words that contain them!

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here at this week’s prompt page and check to make sure it’s here in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome Stream of Consciousness post. Anyone can join in!

To make your post more visible, use the SoCS badge! Just paste it in your Saturday post so people browsing the reader will immediately know your post is stream of consciousness and/or pin it as a widget to your site to show you’re a participant. Wear it with pride!!

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 can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments, for everyone to see. 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!

  32. Ah!! My weekends have been spent in trains and airplanes these past two months and so a very irregular participation in SoCS. And this weekend is no better 😦 But the prompt looks so tempting. It made me think of pitter-patter somehow 😀
    The pitter patter of footsteps as a baby chases a puppy.
    The pitter patter of rain of rooftops and trees.
    The pitter patter of invisible rats spooking you on the terrace at 3am.

    You get the gist 😀 I hope I can start my active participation next week onwards. Will do my rounds later to see how others have rolled with this one! Much love ❤

    • Thanks for this, Prajakta. It made me smile (and cringe a bit – invisible rats? I like the ones I can see much better. 😛 ). 🙂
      Hope things settle down for you soon!


      • That incidence deserves a post of its own! Almost peed in my pants. Had some fun going through the posts.. Like my personal Happy Sunday newspaper! Have a great weekend Linda 🙂


  33. A friend encouraged me to give this a try! It’s my first writing prompt as a blogger. Here’s a poem from a “zeramomma” and former elementary educator.
    Blessings, Brook
