Prompt: Use ‘Stream of Consciousness’ as a narrative device to pen a story.
Definition: In literary criticism, stream of consciousness is a narrative mode or method that attempts “to depict the multitudinous thoughts and feelings which pass through the mind” of a narrator.
Understanding Stream of Consciousness: Stream of consciousness writing allows readers to “listen in” on a character’s thoughts. The technique often involves the use of language in unconventional ways in an attempt to replicate the complicated pathways that thoughts take as they unfold and move through the mind. In short, it’s the use of language to mimic the “streaming” nature of “conscious” thought (thus “stream of consciousness”). Stream of consciousness can be written in the first person as well as the third person.
