Tuesday Tips #3

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: Do you wish you had another life?

Sentence: Samson, Baxter P.D.’s number one K-9 canine, found 9-year-old Sophie Graham’s curled-up body beneath a mound of rotting pumpkins in Morrisey’s field.

Paragraph: Long ago, I had two best friends, Gracia and Brenda. Funny that both their names ended with the same letter, ’cause so did mine – Rubinana. We did everything together, when we didn’t have to be with our families, and called ourselves “The Three Muskateerettes.”

Word of the Day: adumbrate – v. 1. to outline in a shadowy way; sketch 2. to suggest beforehand; foreshadow in a vague way 3. to obscure; overshadow (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, 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, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 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.
