Hear Your Here…

Your Friday prompt for Saturday’s Stream of Consciousness post is “hear/here.” Be creative! 

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here at the prompt page at http://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/08/01/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-august-214/  in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome Stream of Consciousness post. Don’t hesitate to join in!

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/2014/08/01/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-august-214/  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!

I hear the hum of the cicada’s as their tempo rises and falls in the wind. 
Here in my garden oasis I sit drinking coffee as the mocking birds and cardinals dive through the warm balmy air. 
If I listen carefully, I can hear the sound of traffic far off in the distance as the interstate winds its way to travels near and far.
Me, I prefer to sit here, where peace and quiet reign.
Here is home.
If you close your eyes and listen you can hear your “here” in your heart.

    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    appearance. I must say that you’ve ddone a amazing job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads very quick forr mee on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!

    1. Everyone has their own way. Some days the words flow easily. Other days I have to look for inspiration. Try looking at pictures that you like. Write about the emotions you feel when looking at the picture. Try keeping a writing journal. Write what you see and feel. Best of luck. Hope I could help.
