The Friday Reminder and Prompt for SoCS June 13/15


Did someone say Friday? Yes! It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt! I can’t think of a thing to say to lead up to today’s prompt, so here we go, short and sweet:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “onomatopoeia.”  An onomatopoeia is “the formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named.” (Source: Google) Find an onomatopoeic word of your own to base your post on or, as a last resort, use the word “drip.” You don’t have to use the word “onomatopoeia” in your post. 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!

  25. This one took me to great places. The Saturday prompt is turning into my weekly remotivational (wherein I hype myself up and remind myself of all the things I really enjoy about my writing process). Thanks for the spark! It’ll post tomorrow morning.

  27. Hi Linda, can it be a word in a different language? Irene and me might be more able to do it in our mother tongues. Well, of course the post in English but the word from our mother tongue 🙂

  29. This one sounds very difficult for a not native English speaking Linda…..


  30. My brain just went klunk. How am I possibly going to find a use for this word? This could be too challenging for a retiree like me.
