Saturday Ideas #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: What website do you visit the most often?

Sentence: Ramsey turned sideways, looked in the mirror, and struck a pose.

Paragraph: Yvonne Tormei felt guilty. Well, not too guilty. What she did was not a good thing, even though it felt soooo right. She had not meant for that to happen, it just did – and oh so quickly, too. How an ordinary shopping day could turn so different was beyond comprehension. There must be something wrong with her. Why else would she calmly, delightedly eat all thirteen of those warm Krispy Kreme donuts? It was their fault; they gave her the first one free. Then she felt obligated for their generosity, so she bought a dozen more. And the box was soooo warm in her hands, the aroma soooo enticing. She thought she might as well sit down and have just one more. Then, in less than ten minutes, the box was empty – and she didn’t even feel full! But, she was very, very satisfied.

Prompt: Write a thorough review of your latest restaurant or movie experience.

Word of the Day: fideism – n. exclusive reliance in religious matters upon faith, with consequent rejection of appeals to science or philosphy (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.
