The Friday Reminder and Prompt for SoCS June 20/15


Hey, is it Friday? If so, then it’s time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt! I just discovered it’s easier to drink coffee if you put water and coffee grounds in the coffee maker before you turn it on. This amazing revelation came to me right after I slept through my alarm – five times. It goes off five times before it gives up and this morning it got nary the flutter of an eyelid out of me. I’m just waiting for my next bone-headed move… ‘coz you know there have to be three. So, with that little rant out of the way, let’s get on with the prompt. It is Friday, right?

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “bone.”  Do with it whatever comes to mind. 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!

  7. Sorry, late again.
    Forgot about the prompt until this afternoon, then got carried away as usual.
    Worth the wait though, I thoroughly enjoy writing these.

  26. yes, coffee makers are quite tricky aren’t they? I once had one that I could set up the night before and it would brew automatically at a set time. It always woke me up when I smelled coffee.
