Sunday Ponderings #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: What do you feel is none of anybody else’s business?

Sentence: Dennis Howard woke up with the-mother-of-all toothaches.

Paragraph: He took his wife out to eat every night, because he could not stand having dirty dishes remain in the sink overnight. It never occurred to him that she knew his pet peeve and did not clean up after dinner on purpose. However, truth be told, she was not a very good cook, so he feigned a phobia to a messy kitchen.

Prompt: The person you are falling in love with wants to do something you dislike, i.e. bowling, horseback riding, bungy jumping, etc. Describe your dilemma. Do you confess “I’d rather not” and plan something different/better to do? Do you go ahead with his/her idea and are miserable the whole time? What is not appealing about what he/she wants to do? Does their insistence that “you’ll love it” change your mind about this person?

Word of the Day: imprecate – v.t. 1. to call down evil on; curse. – v.i. 2. to invoke evil; utter curses (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.
