Wednesday Wits #10

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: How wide is your circle of friends?

Sentence: Many eyes watched as she plunged into the clear, deep White River and swam like a mermaid.

Paragraph: Frail Roland Archer was terribly sore from having wielded the heavy axe and shoveled so much dirt the previous night. Red eyes signified his lack of sleep, but he could barely raise his arm to apply Visine. However, he could not help but smile with satisfaction as he entered the quiet kitchen and made himself a pot of coffee.

Prompt: Someone you have admired all your life asks you for a favor, an unpleasant one, maybe even an illegal one. Do you think it’s a joke or a test? Do you say yes or no quickly? Or do you need to think about it? 

Word of the Day: kef – n. 1. a dreamy condition 2. a substance, as Indian hemp, smoked to produce this condition  (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.

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.
