The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 2, 2022


It’s the first Friday of April! And I’m here, as always, with your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. I wouldn’t say March went out like a lion, exactly, but it definitely didn’t go out like a lamb. More like a lion cub, maybe. A cute lion cub with sharp little teeth. Here’s your prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tip.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

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. 1. Piece of advice to aide others, i.e. “Way overthink what’s really asked for or portrayed, when you read/view/comment on anything posted on April Fool’s day BEFORE you actually comment or believe what’s portrayed!

    2. T.I.P. – acronym – meaning “To Insure Promptness”, i.e., money presented that is offered to any server at beginning of interaction as reward for showing up and waiting on customer who laid the money on the table, right away, to purchase quick, or specialized service.

    • I’ve never heard that acronym before. Learned something new! Thanks!
      And yeah, I’m always extra careful around the first of this month. 😛

      • yeah – well – it might be true – it might be historical, OR it could be made up – but – I learned it from an older mentor, when I first started working in restaurants, at a young age – I remember it, and remember her, because, well – she knew how to best get things done – and was kind when I said, “why can’t we just to it this way? Seems more efficient…” – She always answered the question – best as she could, with what she knew, or the why of it – thus, at some point? I rather didn’t really care if historically factual – I just liked the story conveyed within it – 😀

  25. This one works well, Linda. March turned the thermostat down on her way out, here, but April is off to a good start. I hope you have a great weekend.
