Thursday Thoughts #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: What are you a whiz at?

Sentence: The 20-gallon aquarium mesmerized T.J., who wondered why the pretty little fish never got tired of swimming back and forth.

Paragraph: When the 10-foot grizzly stood up and roared, Simon Brinkley fell backward in a faint at the same time tracker/hunter Jud Moseley squeezed off his Marlin M-1895-G. Hit with a Garrett Cartridge Co.’s 540 gr. Hammerhead, the smelly bear dropped with quite a thud. Moseley made sure his employer’s heart had not stopped before stepping over to the dead animal.

Prompt: You’re going fishing today. Whereabouts? Are you going to eat what you catch or just try to catch a huge fish and release it? What’s the weather like? Going to use a boat or cast from shore or pier? Do you have a lot on your mind?

Word of the Day: frottage – n. 1. a technique in the visual arts of obtaining textural effects or images by rubbing lead, chalk, charcoal, etc. , over paper laid on a granular or relieflike surface. 2. sexual stimulation through rubbing the genitals against another person (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.
