Saturday Stream of Consciousness Saturday :Route/Root

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “route/root.”  Use one, use both, use them as they are, or add something to them. Have fun!

Here is  the  pingback

The  route  to  Mirmand  from Charnazay!

Today  we  set  off  from  our lovely   Gite in  the  Loire  valley  and  drove  382 miles  down  through  France and up into  to  the Rhone  Alps! The  route  we  took  was  a  mixture  of  motorway  and twisty  turny  mountain  roads  with  BIG  drops!  and  signs  in French  saying  Motor  Bikes   beware and  no  overtaking… but  the  French  motorists do  not  seem  to take  any  notice! I  hasten  to  add  we  did!

The  wifi  here  is  very  sketchy and  I  am standing  out  in a  courtyard  over looking  a  beautiful valley  not  that I  can  see it  because it  is  pitch  black  but  I  have  a fabulous  view  of  the stars and  the  moon. Consequently  this  will  be  a short  post.

We  found our  way  down to  the  ancient town of  Mirmand  a  five  to  ten  minute  route  from our little  stone  cottage and  found  a  restaurant  and  had  a  meal  of  root  vegetable  Lasagna followed  by   cheese cake. Then  fortified  by  a  glass of  red  wine  we  found  our  way  back  by  the  same  route  but  this  time in  totally blackness!

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. Linda will post the prompt  on her blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance,  Linda  will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that Linda  and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of Linda’s post into yours.  Your link will show up in Linda’s comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on Linda’s post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!
