The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 17/18


Would you look at that! It’s Friday again! That means it’s time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. There used to be a time, looong ago, when I could come up with something original for the opening line to this post. As you might have noticed, I’ve run out of new ways to say “it’s Friday.” What’s a girl to do? But I haven’t run out of original prompts yet. Four years’ worth of weekly prompts, this month! The first SoCS prompt was for March 8th, 2014. Anyway, here’s your prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “green.” Use it any way 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 our new 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. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

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!

  40. Woo Hoo to four years and thankful that #SoCS might be what’s keeping you here. 🙂


  41. It’s green! I do like reading these when they come out, but my zeal for writing has lagged somewhat. I have managed to restore both my blogs to be operable again, but writing now seems a drag. Maybe I’ll be revived with the first green springs of spring.


  42. Four years! Thank you, Linda! Where would we be without Saturday SOCS? I don’t even want to think about it.


Don't hesitate - jump right in!
