Friday Notions #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 do you hope to achieve with your writing?

Sentence: Hanging from a crane, 100 feet in the air, Hank had enough time to think back to the first point in his life where things began to go awry.

Paragraph: Switch two letters in insect and you have incest. The former brings to mind all sorts of scary bugs; while the latter is a horrendous crime. The first makes me shudder, but the second makes me very, very angry. Both evoke in me the will to kill.

Prompt: You haven’t smoked in 47 days, but you are waffling. How strong are you? Can you resist the urge? Do you care that quitting is a good thing? Are you trying to prove a point or be a better role model? You don’t need a crutch, do you?

Word of the Day: impecunious – adj. having no money; poor; penniless (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.


About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. 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.
