Sunday Ponderings #15

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: Will tomorrow ever end?

Sentence: Raylinn’s coven was rich with holistic members, which is why she chose it.

Paragraph: “Boys will be boys,” Toby’s gran was always saying. Wonder what she’d say about this? He and Tulley and Sam had run across an old, abandoned well on the Gutsen  place and wondered excitedly if there might be any wishing coins at the bottom. Although it was probably just a bucketless backyard decoration, it revved up their seven-year-old senses of adventure. Leaning over the edge, they could not see the bottom or tell if there was any water in it. Toby looked around and found a rock to drop into it. When no splash was heard, he and Tulley began lowering Sam, who was the smallest, with a piece of old rope they had picked up along the way. Suddenly Sam screamed and a large, hairy arm reached skyward.

Prompt: There is a homeless person with a sign at the stoplight ahead. You cannot change lanes. What does the sign say? What do you do? Are you sympathetic? How homeless does he/she look? Does anyone ahead of you hand out money?

Word of the Day: matronymic – adj. of or derived from the name of the mother or a female ancestor (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.
