Friday Notions #20

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: How old are your favorite clothes or shoes?

Sentence: Roger Edgerton Boyles, Eggy to his mates, lived a life filled with lies.

Paragraph: Stewart sighed. The play’s dialogue was not going well. He burst out of his seat, Hell, a play is all about dialogue! A crazy, unhumorous laugh erupted from within his brain. Idiot, idiot, idiot! He paced, collapsed on the couch, paced, collapsed on the couch, paced, collapsed. “Fuck!” Banging open the French doors, he practically ran to the pool and dove in, clothes and all.

Prompt: You are trapped in a crowded elevator. Describe the smells, tightness, voices.

Word of the Day: uglify – vt. to make ugly; disfigure (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.

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.
