The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec.16/17

Linda G. Hill

It’s Friday again and time now for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. I’m seriously considering writing the prompt post ahead of time and scheduling for Friday mornings, rather than doing it when I get around to it. Because this is getting ridiculous, isn’t it? Good thing I don’t put off my Christmas shopping like I put off posting this prompt. … oh, wait … *runs to the store* Here’s your prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “contrast.” Use the word “contrast,” or talk about contrasting things. Enjoy!

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!
