The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 25/18


Happy Friday! It’s time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. I’ve had a busy week, what with organizing our new SoCS badge. Today’s its first day! Yay! Here’s your prompt:

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

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here to 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 pretty, 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. I will post the prompt here on my blog every 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 will simply be a single word to get you 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 all of them! 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 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!

    • To be perfectly honest, I might not. Between being a single mom with two disabled kids and two careers, I’m barely able to keep up with my own stuff.
      But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate your participation. I do this as much for the community it creates around me. Whether or not I can actually participate in that community myself depends on a lot of factors, but mostly, time.
      Thank you for giving me the chance to express myself. 🙂 ❤

      • haha.. that is the reality. I really appreciate the honesty. This was actually written for your prompt while I was travelling. I could not think of anything as my mind was preoccupied with many stuffs. and this little thing flashed in me. How many us really bother about the virtual world we are in.. Thanks Linda 🙂


        • Thank you for putting it where I would definitely notice it. 🙂 I often feel guilty that I’m not able to pay more attention to my blog and others.
          Your little poem is as beautiful as it is succinct. ❤

      • Kudos to you, Linda! I was a single mom for three years. I once had a full time job, went to school full time after work, and had my daughter as a new baby with no help from my ex. I appreciate all you’re doing having two careers, keeping a community together. Take care of yourself! ❤ ❤
