The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 17, 2021


Friday’s here and so am I with your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. Another wet week on the east coast of North America while the west is burning. There needs to be a way to fold the continent up like a taco. Here’s your prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “least-favorite word.” Use your least-favorite word in your post. If you can’t decide on one, use a word that just really bugs you. 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 beautiful 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!!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley!

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 particular 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!

  1. I missed this prompt, but it reminded me of a poem I wrote:


    The word itself
    Oozes with ignorance
    Festers with insecurity
    Seethes with intolerance
    Boils with anger
    We know what happens
    When people say it or act on it


  2. “Always” – “Never” – “Everyone” – “No one” – “Good” – “Bad”

    I recently watched a documentary (2021 launch) that said, “No ONE pays attention to labels for sugars or starch”

    – – So, in one line, and a laugh by the EXPERT scientist?

    I am instantly, labeled as a “nobody’ –

    Does that mean I (or anyone who DOES read labels?) no longer exist? LOL – –

    The whole impression behind what the label “expert” means, rather torques me off, too –

    And always, when generalizations are ‘trucked out’, I descend into the whole ‘if a tree falls in the forest….” philosophical question… 🙂

  3. This post was published (I thought) Saturday, but for some reason WP turned it into (“oops”-that-page-can’t-be-found). I sharing with you today – two days late. 😀

  40. What an interesting prompt! I agree that we should be able to move some wetness to the west. Maybe not with folding, but we should have the technology by now.
