#SoCS – What day is it anyway?


A year later, and I’m still asking myself that question almost every morning when I wake up. The only reason I bother wondering? I need to know whether Alex is expected at virtual school. For me, every day is the same. Work. I do it seven days a week, most days from the time I finish breakfast ’til the time I go to bed. Minus time off for walks, interruptions from the kids, and to eat. Oh, and housework. I do that occasionally, too.

Day in, day out.

My consolation? My bright spot in the world. Writing books people enjoy, doing a good job when I edit and making my clients happy, and sending out prompts. Because aside from looking after my kids and making sure they’re as content as they can be, from this tiny room at this small computer it seems I can still make a difference in the world, and that is a truly great thing.

It constantly amazes me the reach we have. And if we choose to use it wisely, we can make a positive change in the world. Even when we’re stuck inside.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the people who have read my blog and participated in my prompts over the past year. I feel like I don’t express my appreciation enough, but I really do appreciate it. Because without you all, I’d be prompting the void. And the void doesn’t answer back. I might even go as far as to say it a-voids it. (Haha! Yes, I’m tired. But I still got it.)

What was I saying?

Oh yes.

Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. ❤

  2. I am so grateful to you too Linda it such a comfort to know you are there. …l have been participating in #WDIIA but I don’t do it so often now because it’s ground hog day here and I have had a lot of negatives that I don’t want to go on about. Your prompts are always welcome… looking for the positive as always 💜💜💜

  3. I’ve been in ‘what day is it?” land since my stroke – in 2011. One Boon to be had from this past year? I’m not feeling so alone anymore – :D. Thank you for putting prompts and words and stories to it – 😀

    • Ya know? I JUST LIED to you – it’s NOT True! I’ve been in ‘what day is it?” since I worked jobs that had rotating shifts and sometimes marathon work shifts too – the stroke made it even harder to navigate via the ‘fail safes’ I put into working 24/7 jobs for so long – – sigh – I posted my comment and realized, quickly, “Well, that’s a lie – ” so wanted to quickly clarify/correct – LOL. Sigh – but in the end? I’ve felt both more apart AND more connected with others, both and sometimes all at the same time – This year of ‘hmmm…okay…this is rather different for a long time that affects many….” – LOL

  6. Your prompts create a little community of bloggers and I appreciate the ones I have connected with. And the prompts do help focus my writing and give me the nudge to write at least once a week. I really appreciate the ‘Stream of Consciousness’ platform. Hope we all get through with these pandemic times ASAP.

  7. I can say, without hesitation, it’s been my pleasure. Your prompts anchor two points in the week for me – Wednesday and Saturday – without them, there might be a big blur between the weekend and the week. Your SoCS challenge has become my favorite writing experience. Thank you, Linda!
