Saturday Ideas #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: How do you choose a friend?

Sentence: Until Sam Lucas walked into my life, I never knew what true misery was.

Paragraph: A low rumble alerted her to the forecasted approaching storm. She raced through the house, turning off all the lights as she made her way to the great room with its spanning wall of glass. Tingling with anticipation, she settled down on the suede sofa with socked feet on the leather ottoman. Within moments the sky became streaked with lightning flashes and thunder began booming with ferocious intensity.

Word of the Day: pettifoggery – n. quibbling over petty details. (I Always Look Up the Word “E-gre-gious” by Maxwell Nurnberg, Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1981)

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

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.
