SoCS gets away

Today will be a truly Stream of Consciousness post as I want to get away from the editing. I write as it comes to my mind and if you find a typo ~ have fun with it.
I also want to get away from the blogging for a day or so. I pre-write this one and schedule it so that you can enjoy my scribbling anyway but I will be sitting at home with a cup of tea or one of my famous Bee mugs and I will be reading.
Preferably about Shakespeare. Yes, I have found “Introducing Shakespeare ~ A Graphic Guide” to fill in my gaps of knowledge about the great author and will get away from ignorance. There is also another Sandman comic awaiting me and a poetry book. Can you feel my longing to get away and find some time to read?
I also want to get away from boring poetry writing. You might have read Friday nights “A Prompt A Day For Bee” where I have been asking how to improve my poetry writing. But from “A Prompt A Day For Bee” I do not want to get away. I actually want more of it.
There you have it. Lots of what I want to get away from but when you read this I will be away. In bed actually, as I scheduled this one for Saturday night. In this sense: Good night, Good morning or Good afternoon depending on where you are.
This entry takes part in Linda G Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday “getting away
If you are tempted to take part: Here are the rules (taken from Linda’s blog)

 

“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 past the following: “This post is part of SoCS: (http://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/03/01/socs-stream-of-consiousness-saturday-the-rules/)” Also, you can come here and link your post in the comments. The most recent comments will be found at the top.

 

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has pinged back their post. If you’re the first person to ping 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!” (credit Linda G Hill)
