The Friday Reminder and Prompt for SoCS May 30/15


Friday is here and with it your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. A little glimpse of what writing this prompt is like: every week I go through the list of past prompts to make sure I don’t repeat myself. It’s getting to take a long time! I love coming up with just the right idea for the week. I get a feeling that’s like, “Yes! That’s the one!” Here’s the one for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “almost.”  Use it however you’d like. Have fun!

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!

  12. Hi there. Yes, I got carried away again, hope it’s not too long to read.
    Once I get the beginning and end in my head, I can’t help adding stuff as I go along.
    A to B, via Z, that’s me. ;~}

  29. Linda – I tried but I failed. I wrote my post SoC but when I looked at it, it was an awful mix of past and present tense. I had to edit. I “almost” made it. I did ping back to here, but I have disclaimer in both places. Have a great weekend.
