The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 26/15


Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Fantastic Festivus! Cheerful Friday! Whatever you’re celebrating, it’s time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. This week’s prompt is an idea I’ve had for a while. It’s actually appropriate, since many of us are emptying them this morning. Or at least our kids are. But when I mention the word, my family knows I’m usually talking about whatever I’m writing on the weekend.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “socks.”  Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

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,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

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. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

  2. Hi Linda, I’m new to SoCS, so I have a few inquiries. Do I write this prompt only on Saturday? If I missed it, may I still write it? Or do I have to wait for another Saturday? 🙂


    • You can write it any time if you want to, but your post will be seen by more people if you write it on the Saturday that it’s prompted for. You’ll find a new prompt every Friday here on my blog. Not sure if you know how ping backs work, but as soon as you place a link to the prompt post on your post, a link to yours will show up in my comments. Quick tip – mention that it’s your first time and you’ll likely get plenty of welcomes. 🙂

    Forgot to add “sock it to me” to my SoCS posted on F.
    I enjoyed SoCS, the 2015 edition; I look forward to the 2016 edition.

  25. I was unsure of SoCS would happen on Christmas, but I am glad the stream of consciousness writing must go on.
    Merry Christmas to you Linda and this prompt has made most of my 2015 so much better.


  26. Happy Holidays. Love your inclusion of Festivus ! 🎄


  27. Merry Christmas to you and your family Linda 🙂
