Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Indulgence and Deprivation

SOC Sunday 2015

Yes, it’s back. It’s Stream of Consciousness Sunday. Two things I’ve been missing in blogging lately: the ability to freely write and the sense of community. I had both of those when I hosted my weekly link-up, Stream of Consciousness Sunday. For those of you that have participated, starting next week, I’m bringing the link-up […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Created in My Own Image

Now I know why people loved Stream of Consciousness Sunday. I get so caught up in programs and sponsored posts and reviews and work that sometimes I want to just write. And sometimes, the words just don’t come. With Jana’s SOC Sunday, I get a quick prompt and 5 minutes to just type whatever comes out […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Helpless


I feel far away from writing sometimes. Like really writing. I have lots to write about. Cool trips, cool products. But when writing becomes too obligatory, it loses it sparkle and meaning. So I’ve been heading back to Jana’s Thinking Place to check on her Stream of Consciousness Sunday prompts. When I originally started the […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: What I don’t understand

All this week, I was thinking that it might be time for a 5 minute brain dump. And as you probably know, Sunday is the best time to do it. When I turned over the reins of Stream of Consciousness Sunday to Jana, I hoped to be able to still participate from time to time. […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: It’s my brain and I’ll do what I like

Poor Jana over at Jana’s Thinking Place is so sick that she could barely take time to write a prompt for today’s Stream of Consciousness Sunday. It’s okay, though, because I had my own thoughts brewing that I simply needed to get out. Here’s 5 minutes, unedited, from my brain this morning. *** I hate writing […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: I just keep missing the boat

In case you haven’t heard, Stream of Consciousness Sunday no longer belongs to me. I turned the reins over to my friend Jana at Jana’s Thinking Place. But I’m still happy to stop over when I can and participate in a much needed brain dump. Jana’s prompt this week? Dreams. — One think I’m really […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Rowing out to meet the ship

Guess who’s back for 5 minutes on a Sunday? But I’m no longer the host. I’m just a happy participant with Jana from Jana’s Thinking Place. And today’s writing prompt? Anticipation.   A few weeks ago, someone on Facebook asked if there was a theme song for your life. Or it was something along those […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday LIVES!!!


Last week, as some of you read, I decided to stop my run of hosting the weekly link-up for Stream of Consciousness Sunday. And it’s an understatement to say I was surprised by the reaction. I had no idea how many people liked to read. And how many others maybe didn’t participate, but liked the […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Reinventing Myself

I knew this day would come but honestly I thought it would be later this year. This is the last Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. I won’t be hosting the meme anymore and while I never set out to teach anyone anything, I hope that you’ve learned the quality of writing that can come when […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: All About Dads

It’s Father’s Day. Let’s face it. There are a lot of dad issues out there. It just seems that it’s easier to find a good mom than it is to find a good dad. So do we really even need them? I gave some thought to my own dad and to my husband, the father […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: My Secret Double Life

My writing has slowed down a bit as my lifestyle has changed a bit for the summer. I have less time for online and I’m awfully distracted by this new house. It needs a lot of decorating so I’m trying to keep up. I also usually wait until late Saturday night to write this post. […]
