Stream of consciousness is a style of writing in which the thoughts of a character appear as they might run through his/her brain. Many can relate to trying to get a task done, but our thoughts are inevitably drawn to thinking of other things that burden us, etc. Stream of consciousness in writing is a way to make characters real and believable. If we can see that a character's thoughts are disjointed or not always linear, this can make a character truly relatable to the reader.
