Tuesday Tips #1

The purpose of this blog is to help writers with their work, to be museful or perhaps instrumental in unclogging thoughts. To this end, I am providing a daily question, beginning sentence, and beginning paragraph to stimulate your “little gray cells.”

Question: What does the word sorrow bring to mind?

Sentence: The smells of Mama baking caressed my senses before I walked up the back steps.

Paragraph: Determination – that’s my middle name. Really, I’m not kidding. I was named Josephine Determination Banks by my maternal grandfather, who wanted me to feel strong and not be worried that he had to raise me alone.

Word of the Day: ailurophile – n. a person who is strongly attracted to or devoted to cats. (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

If your work needs a title, editing, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.

About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
