Sunday Ponderings #5

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: Is/was your mother a good cook?

Sentence: The Nuntz family set out for the county fair in high spirits.

Paragraph: Gramma Rose was a pistol. She was sweet to me and Wendell, but to everyone else she was crabby. She played the piano while Wendell and I sang and danced, but she would not touch it when the adults were around. Mostly, I remember her wearing this good-smelling stuff she called toilet water, which had me wondering for a long time just exactly where it came from.

Word of the Day: goombah – n. an older man who is a friend, protector, advisor, etc. (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.
