Thursday Thoughts #16

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 first time you felt confident?

Sentence: The wind came up quickly, causing the makeshift shack to shudder.

Paragraph: Day after day, she wandered around the house in search of her daughter. She peered into every closet and cabinet, behind and under every piece of furniture before reaching the basement door, which was always shut tight. Tight against the danger of the stairs and the darkness below. The doorknob out of Amy’s reach, or it had been until a few weeks ago.

Prompt: It is your first funeral. How old are you? Who has died? Did you ask to go or are you being made to go? Describe the experience.

Word of the Day: eclogue – n. a short pastoral poem, especially one in dialogue form (Oxford American Dictionary, Heald Colleges Edition, 1980)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.

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.
