Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “Is”

a socs-badge

Is it Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again? Yes, class, it is. This week the prompt is as described by Linda Hill  “Use the word “is” to begin your post – bonus points for using it (as a word on its own or at the end of your final word, i.e. “metamorphosis”) at the end of your post as well.” If you would like to participate go to Linda’s site Here is my interpretation.

“Is” by John W. Howell ©2015

“Is the instruction quite clear to you?”

“Uh, I think it is.”

“Okay then tell me what your understanding is.”

“I’m required to use the word “is” in a post.”

“Nice so far. What else is expected to happen?”

“Um, I’m supposed to start the post with the word is.”

“Is that what you did?”

“Er, I think the question at the very beginning is what is required.”

“The question is again?”

“Is this Stream of Consciousness Saturday? It is way up top at the beginning.”

“Good I think you have what is required.”

“But one more thing is necessary.”

“Yeah, and what is that?”

Is is supposed to be the last word or part of the last word in the post.”

“Is that right?”

“Yes, it is.”

    We’re got three kids in the house today and I haven’t even started mine yet. The advantage of being in a different timezone is, I can stay up late and still post in time.
    Wish me luck, I’ve got a small seed of an idea, we’ll see what develops…

    1. Good luck on the prompt. 🙂

    Interesting post!

    1. Thank you for the reblog Kim.

  11. You are so clever to use dialogue for these posts. Bravo, John!

    1. Thank you Sue. I tend to use dialog on most of my relax type writing. It is a nice break and I am trying to improve. One day i would like to write a whole book with nothing but dialog and have readers love it. (May not be possible) 🙂
