Saturday Ideas #7

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, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day to stimulate your “little gray cells.”

Question: Have you ever viewed the night sky in an isolated area?

Sentence: In the middle of the night the prison van dropped him and two others off at the bus station.

Paragraph: Although she adored the woods, lichen disgusted her. Its color and forms did not appeal to her in the least. Unlike moss, lichen gave her a creepy feeling and always made her nervous, as though she was being watched. Like now.

Prompt: The next time you’re in an airport, describe the people you see. Are any of them nervous? Are any of them dressed too well or too poorly? Who do you wish would be seated next to you?

Word of the Day: cannikin – n. a small can or drinking cup (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991.)

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

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.
