It’s Saturday and so it’s time for Stream of Conciousness! If you’d like to participate as well, 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,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people will come and read your post! The way to ping back, is to just copy and paste the URL of my post somewhere on your post. Then your URL will show up in my comments, for everyone to see. For example, in your post you can copy and paste the following: This post is part of SoCS: http://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/06/27/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-june-2814/ The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.
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. Have fun!
The prompt for this week is the word “emote.”
…Emote. There are a lot of things in this world that we as humans emote. I have been told time and time and time and time and time again that I “wear my heart on my sleeve” and sometimes I think that means that I emote too many things. But then I think about all the other people that I know that don’t emote anything at all. There’s a stark contrast between those two types of people. And I am not trying to say that one is better than the other.
Emotions are beautiful things. They exist so we can get through life with new perspectives. I learn a lot from my own emotions and almost as much from the emotions of others. Sometimes they hurt, sometimes they heal. But no matter what, they are beautiful.
