Wednesday Wits #17

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 a busybody, nosy Nellie, or buttinsky?

Sentence: With great trepidation Laurel Hammond went into the darkening woods to find Pearl, her new puppy.

Paragraph: Josh had been waiting for this his whole teenage life. When the woman he had chosen came through the beaded curtain, he became instantly hard. As she slowly undressed him, she rubbed her bare breasts up and down his torso. Squeezing his eyes shut and clamping his teeth together, he fought off ejaculating too soon. But when her tongue slowly licked the edge of his ear, Josh let go.

Prompt: You are 10 years old again. Your Mom wants you to play outside. What do you do? Do you have siblings? Do you have neighborhood friends? Do you prefer reading to playing outside? Do you have a treehouse? Ride a bike? Get into trouble? Sneak into the basement?

Word of the Day: keck – vi. 1. to retch or heave, as if about to vomit 2. to feel or show great disgust (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.
