The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS October 7, 2017 Save/Safe

It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. I should probably mention I’m not Linda, I’m Joey from Joeyfully Stated, filling in for Linda while she does important published author things like signing books. How exciting!

I had some excitement today as well. After discovering the email and used prompt list was not in my precious Save folder, I had myself a right good panic. You maybe don’t know this about me, but I am one of the world’s foremost alarmists. Chicken Little ain’t got nothin on me. Fortunately, my daughter saved me from myself.
Cleanest digging through “Trash” I’ve ever done.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: save/safe. Use one or both. If you start and end with either of them, you’ll get bonus points. 

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here at 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 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!!


I need to save myself from myself. I am my own worst enemy. I have medical conditions galore and I manage to upset myself before I have to. I have to find out what is going on and what might possibly happen and how awful it might be. And might be is the operative word. Many times things simply aren’t as bad as I originally thought. Right now I am focused on the possibility of back and neck surgery for stenosis of the spine, herniated and missing discs and pinched nerves. Nothing like having your entire body numb and tingling with pain.


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,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your 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.

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. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!
