Wednesday Wits #13

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/who make up your love/hate lists?

Sentence: Lone Star flags flew at half-mast for rancher, oil baron, and good-ol’- boy W.D. Schulenbahn.

Paragraph: Pete woke Miranda up at five, so she read. He closed his book, turned off his book light, and rolled away from her. When she finally grew sleepy, she closed her book, turned off her book light, and turned away from him, smiling. Glad to be going back to sleep, because her day was going to be a long one. But Pete turned over, pulled her legs between his, and began rubbing her arm and shoulder. Shit, she silently cursed. Don’t you know you’re taking away my sleepiness? Within moments he began snoring and shaking involuntarily, while Miranda lay trapped and wide awake in the dark – again.

Prompt: You run a people zoo. What would you name it? Who would be caged and on display? How much would you charge?

Word of the Day: gestic – adj. pertaining to bodily motions, esp. in dancing (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.
