Stream of Consciousness Sunday: The End.

I’ve felt this coming for a while.

The change. The feeling that it had run its course and that it’s time to move on.

The end of Stream of Consciousness Sunday is here. 

Over a year ago, July 8, actually I took SOCSunday over from Fadra. She handed it over to me, entrusting that I could keep its spirit alive.

I think I’ve done a decent job. But it’s now feeling overwhelming. Sometimes I just don’t have anything to say. Or I want to write more. Or I just don’t feel like doing it. I have a hard time going in and reading posts that are linked up and that makes me feel sad. Making time isn’t my strongest point right now.

To my community: I love y’all. And I hope you’ll still visit. I’ll still visit you. Keep writing and keep dumping your brain.

And if you’re interested in a free writing every week, go link up on Tuesdays with Heather for Just Write!

Thank you for sticking it out with me!

  1. Hey, Jana.

    I hope you’re well. It’s strange that this should come at this time, really…I’ve been pondering the purpose of my place for a while now. I really relate to not having anything to say sometimes, because for the life of me, I’m not sure what happens when a grief blog (as mine was originally conceived) is no longer necessary for the author. Obviously, I want the space to be there for others, but I haven’t anything to say at the moment.

    Great post – I’ll miss SOC Sunday, but will drop in at Heather’s when I feel the need for some freewriting goodness.

    Take care,

    • Thank you, Casey. There are so many things i need to think about and focus on. This is one of those things that always seemed to take more time than it should to put together. It should take 5 minutes, but I always found myself searching for words, making it not free writing at all. Maybe I’ll bring it back later. Maybe something better will shake out. I’ll still visit if you’ll still free write! xoxo

  2. I totally respect your choice and the timing is so ironic: this morning when I turned on the computer this is the first place I visited, so excited to write in community. I have done Just Write Tuesdays before… and I was actually discouraged because no one commented on my writing! Maybe it has changed. That’s what I loved about this community was it was friendly and not so overwhelmingly big.

    And you know what? When the time comes, it is so good to say TIME! So I completely respect your TIME call. You are a dear one and I enjoy visiting (I still will!) and am so glad we got a chance to meet.

    Much love –

    • When I sat down last night to write today’s post, I realized I couldn’t do it anymore. It had been swirling around in my head for a few weeks and this time, it just clicked — hit me in the head like a cosmic 2×4. Maybe it’ll come back. Maybe something better will shake out. Maybe we’ll all just read each other and comment/like/tweet. Thank you for participating. Don’t be a stranger and I promise not to be one either! xoxo

  3. Jana,

    I completely get it. I hope you let yourself off the hook here. All good things must come to an end, as the saying goes. You’ve done an amazing job and I wish I’d linked up more. I know the pressure you refer to, and I hope taking this off your plate will relieve that.

  4. Sorry it’s ending! I loved linking up when I was able. It was good while it lasted and now we are moving on to the next thing.
    Hope this will ease your burden and that you’ll be ready to exhale.

  5. Just got back into writing today after a 6+ month break.

    Thought I’d stop in and see about SOC. Sorry that you stopped, but I understand the strain. I will check out the Tuesday blog and see if that helps me get back into blogging.

    Thanks for doing this while you did!
