I was so pumped up! I was ready! After months and months of reading others’ Stream of Consciousness Saturday posts, I was ready! I had my link and SoCS badge set up and prepared to do their job. I read the prompt on Friday and had spent 24 hours letting it float around in my brain.
I sat down and got to the business of writing, but first I wanted to check in and see what the word prompts were for a few other challenges. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to see if they might make an appearance in my post.
And that’s when I saw it.
Someone else’s post for the SoCS challenge.
I blinked my eyes, hoping to clear the blasted floaters and blurriness. That had to be it, right? My eyes were playing tricks on me, right? I took off my glasses and held them up at the light coming through the window. No smudges. Without glasses, I looked back at the screen. There was absolutely no doubt about it. My eyes had let me down.
While I was pondering how to write streamingly and consciously about the word hone, the prompt was actually bone.
Better luck next week, right?
Have a great weekend!
