Stream of Consciousness Sunday is a five minute writing exercise. The rules are simple. No proofreading, no editing. Just a pure 5 minute brain dump. Click on the badge and head over to Jana’s Thinking Place if you’d like to link up.

No Writing Prompt Today:


I could write all day today and still I wouldn’t be done emptying this brain of mine. Where’s my prompt, Jana? I am so random and scattered lately that this additional bit of randomness thrown in has me spinning. Around and around and…

I’ve been wondering lately if I took on more than I can handle. Like maybe three blogs and a column is too much for one me. But then I think again and I remind myself that I need different outlets for the different aspects that make up the whole of who I am. It’s not so much that I didn’t want to clutter one blog with all my “stuff.” I couldn’t because… It just didn’t feel right… and…It has to feel right…for me.

My life is a scattered mess. My blogs have to be neat, orderly and specific. I can’t do Jambalaya blogging. Sometimes I wish I could. My life would be simpler. But..a post about my Lord and Savior, followed by a post about my lipstick, followed by a sponsored post about oatmeal cookies all on the same blog doesn’t work – for me. I need ORDER!

Where is my prompt, Jana?

I think I went over my five minutes so I’ll…


Be Blessed!

    You had me at Jambalaya blogging. I’m from New Orleans and I miss my jambalaya!!! I know exactly what you mean about taking on too much. I think I’m guilty of that as well, which is why my SOC post had to do w/ letting something go….getting something off my plate.

    So glad I stopped by from SOC!

    I found a lot of humor in this Taylor especially the mixing of blog posts. And when you asked Jana. Few times for a prompt. When my mind is messy, I need a prompt, too. Helps me sort. My dumping is mostly random too!

      I guess random dumping helps. I just prefer my ramblings to be pointed in one direction as opposed to going every which way.

    I’m glad you don’t have the Lord, lipstick and oatmeal cookies all in the same place. I agree, that its not you. I like your posts here and over there. I know it’s hard to maintain though. ONE blog is a lot. I’m amazed at people who can manage to write in them daily.

    Oh, I love that term, Jambalaya blogging. I do that, I realize, and yet I have other blogs I keep up as well. I saw you write poetry and just have to throw a plug for OctPoWriMo as if you don’t have enough to do but hey, if you’re writing poetry anyway, you could just write SOC style poetry a la the beat poets and make new friends while you are at it! (Yes, that is at 31 poems in 31 days.) I can feel your brain traffic jam. That’s how I labeled mine for this SOC Sunday! Hugs and hope you can write it all out today!

    I love your reference to Jambalaya blogging. I think so much of what goes on is so mixed up and crazy that we need order!

    I love it! Thanks for sharing.
