Wednesday Wits #14

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 food disgusts you?

Sentence: The blow came when Clancy took a moment to wipe the sweat out of his eyes.

Paragraph: As the ferris wheel neared the top, Jane’s fear rendered her as stiff as any live person could be. She had hated ferris wheels ever since her sister, Diane, had swung their seat back and forth years ago. Her hands were frozen on the safety bar, while her eyes were clamped shut. Silently, Jane was chanting, Why am I here? Why am I here? Why am I here? when Ethan lightly touched her bare thigh. An ear-piercing scream erupted from her depths, startling him, which caused their gondola to rock. Instantly, Jane fainted and her body slithered off the seat.

Prompt: Describe learning how to swim or teaching someone to swim.

Word of the Day: fossorial – adj. digging or adapted for digging; burrowing (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.
