#SoCS July 13/19 – Instructions

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “instructions.” Write instructions for anything you know how to do. As detailed or as rambling as you’d like. Enjoy!

Instructions For How Not To Write A Book

  1. Have a brilliant idea
  2. Start writing it
  3. Spend 18 years snatching moments to write
  4. Finally type The End
  5. Realise that is not the end really
  6. Reread.
  7. Rewrite
  8. Reread
  9. Rewrite
  10. Get readers
  11. Rewrite
  12. Try and submit to agents
  13. Feel down, then perk up when you remember J.K. Rowling and Stephen King had many rejections
  14. Find an editor
  15. Get excited and look at cover possibilities
  16. Read feedback from editor
  17. Cringe
  18. Rewrite
  19. Reread
  20. Tentatively send out to next set of readers

This is when it can go one of a few ways.

  • You find an agent, and get a fantastic publishing deal! Yay!
  • You find your mailbox cluttered with rejections and you decided to give up… Don’t!
  • You look at the possibility of Self/Indie Publishing, find a fantastically supportive community and find your success that way! Double Yay!

I’m at the post Editor feedback rewriting stage now. Thankfully there weren’t as many cringes as I thought there would be… It’s just crazy trying to find time to finish the rewrite!

Hopefully it won’t be long before I can announce something postive about this book!!!

#SoCS July 6/19 – Chew/Choo

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “chew/choo.” Use one or both, any way you’d like. Have fun!

Here’s something to chew upon…
Does a train go Chugga Chugga Choo Choo or Chuff Chuff Choo Choo?

#SoCS June 29/19 – For/Fore/Four

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “for/fore/four.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you want. Bonus points for using all three. Enjoy!

Oh, Linda, you chose the best words to be honest for me to use today!

There is something at the forefront of my mind today, that involves the number four, well, actually, a one and a four.

Today is the day my Lil Man turns fourteen!

How did that happen?

From a teeny twinkle in my eye, through a painful journey to conceive and all the wonder, joy and frustration that accompanies bringing up a child, to the young man he is growning up to be now…

Fourteen, though? Really?

And the day he arrived was even more special, as he made his appearance on his granny’s birthday!

So that means it’s my mummy’s birthday too.

See.

A special day for us all.

So excuse me if I don’t reply too fast… I’ll be busy celebrating the birthdays of two very special people. One is with me, one isn’t, but they’ll both be in my thoughts all day.

Happy Birthday Lil Man and Mum!!!!

#SoCS June 22/19 – Leaves

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “leaves.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

What an apt prompt, as I have been thinking of leaves this week!

We are discussing Mini Beasts as a topic, in both of my classes these few weeks, Nursery and Reception, and leaves feature heavily, because slugs, snails and caterpillars like to eat them, black fly like to destroy them, ladybird larvae are often found on them in the playgrounds, etc.

Kids love us. And they love to bring in topic relevant presents, whether it is a dead fly or a leaf with a bug on it, to live snails brought lovingly to us, via their pockets! 🤢 Leaves a bit of a nasty taste…

Really!

We are also becoming adept at cutting out leaves freehand for myriad activities too, from leaves ready for them to hole punch, to small ones for them to use in collage… Fun and games!

And there you have it. Leaves. EYFS style!†
