Saturday Ideas #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: When was the last time you had the last laugh?

Sentence: Alana, unlike her siblings, had no desire whatsoever to be a teenager again.

Paragraph: Jeff “T-Bone” Fletcher had had enough of city life. His long-suffering soul needed to get back to the basics: freedom, sun, redwoods, meditation. After  handing in his resignation at Kratz, Kratz, and Levitz, he headed to the Franciscan monastery in Big Sur. Every mile closer to the retreat eased his spirit, but Highway 1 was not a road to be taken carefreely.

Prompt: You have had a long, hard day. After getting into bed and turning out the light, a mosquito buzzes past your ear. What happens next? Will you ignore it or let it bite you?

Word of the Day: kenspeckle – adj. easily seen or recognized; conspicuous (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.

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.
