Thursday Thoughts #11

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: For whom do you feel the most sorry?

Sentence: Cookie Cassidy should have been named Kooky Kalamity.

Paragraph: Her eyes were drawn to the bed of a beat-up truck, where her ears had perked to some whining. A cardboard sign leaned up against the bumper: FREE PUPPIES. Ruth looked around the parking lot for the absent owner to no avail. Within the bed were two brown-and-white, under-nourished mutts. One was quiet; one was making the pathetic noise. She felt the sleeping one and realized it was dead. Without hesitation she picked up the fragile survivor, hoping it was not too late.

Prompt: How about some erotica? Describe your sexual fantasy. Do you get so turned on just writing it down that you have to take a break? Is it mild or outlandish? Fetish or threesome?

Word of the Day: bedizen – vt. to dress or decorate in a cheap, showy way (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. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
