Wednesday Wits #12

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 many of your dreams have come true?

Sentence: The trek up the snowy hillside was sooo worth the exhilarating ride down.

Paragraph: Sylvia Grayson had the best racquetball killshot at the club. Her backhand also packed quite a punch. She could beat half the men, but was not allowed to compete in their bracket, which ticked her off no end. Trim but not too tall, Grayson was nimble and agile as a teenager. Whenever she played, her groupees would gather to watch through the glass back-wall and up on the mezzanine, where tournament judging took place. Oddly, all the attention did not go to Grayson’s head; she knew she was good but did not rub her natural abilities into anyone’s face. Then along came 18-year-old Abigail Wajinsky.

Prompt: You wake up and find that you are the opposite sex. Describe your feelings and your actions regarding this “new” you.

Word of the Day: knur – n. a knotty growth, as on a tree

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.
