Number 3 – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Point
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “point.” Open a book on your lap, close your eyes, and put your finger on the page. Whatever you land on, whether it be a word, a phrase, or a sentence, write about it. Enjoy!
This is where we let it all hang out on Saturday…the SOCS. Linda gives us a suggested prompt to write to, and we can take it in all kinds of fun, informative, and weird directions. Join in, why don’t you. The link to the details are above. Thanks, Linda!
So, we’re to find a book of ours, close our eyes, point to something on a page and start writing. Hmmm…
First question? Which book? Any book? The book we’re currently reading, or a favorite book, or hocus-pocus just grab something from the bookshelf?
I thought about it for awhile, and picked 3, because 3 is the magic number, right? You get 3 wishes, you turn 3 times, 3 on a match, bad/or good things come in 3s, and so on. So…three (3).
My books are:
Favorite book – “Lost Souls”, by Poppy Z. Brite
…word/sentence chosen with eyes closed – page 49 (ooh 4 + 9 = 13) – ‘The locusts were still singing in the trees and in the long weeds by the side of the road, but their song grew sad, the harbinger of another summer’s end.’
Old Favorite Book picked from the bookshelf – “The Survival of Jan Little”, by John Man –
…page 141 – (ooh 1+ 4 + 1 = 6 & 3 + 3 = 6) – The forest was silent, except for the electric hum of some nearby insect’.
Current Book I’m reading – “Glitch”, by Heather Anastasiu
…Page 43 – (ooh another number with 3 in it) – ‘Images from our textbooks flashed in my mind as I struggled to hurry down the stairs.’
My conclusion is that all of these were picked at random (eyes closed) and all had something to do with the number 3, two were something about trees, woods, forests, and insects, and well, the last one…stairs & textbooks. And, I got the last book at the library book sale recently, and we had to go down the stairs to the basement part of the library where the sale is held. Along with all kinds of books, there are also textbooks for sale.
Does this have any Point to it? No, but it was fun to see what happened with using this prompt. It was a lot of fun!
