Friday Notions #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: Are you good at telling jokes?

Sentence: Alvin Leroy Morris would rather be ground up in a wood chipper than go to his in-laws.

Paragraph: Something was wrong. Captain Naomi Warner could feel it in her delicate bones. Looking around the dimly illumined galley of her starship, Reckoning IV, a spot of neon pink caught her eye. That shouldn’t be there. Frowning, she warily stepped closer to the strange glow with one hand poised over her stun gun and one slender finger of the other ready to alert security.

Prompt: You are having a dinner party. How many will be attending? Is it casual? What’s on the menu? Is it for a special occasion? Are you prepared for something to go wrong?

Word of the Day: boscage – n. a natural growth of trees or shrubs; wooded place (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.
