Sunday Ponderings #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 many mirrors do you have?

Sentence: Jamie Nix did not like being pushed, not one bit.

Paragraph: McElvie’s pond was just over the next rise. I’d be safe there, hopefully. But, being so whoozy with blood loss, I wasn’t sure I’d make it. Even though I’d ripped my shirt in half and tied the pieces around each ankle to absorb the blood trickling down my legs, I feared that I may have left a clear trail. I couldn’t think straight anymore, and that could be my downfall.

Prompt: For one day, try to be the opposite of who you are. If you are gregarious, say as little as possible. If you are fidgety, be relaxed and calm. If you are quiet, speak out. Et cetera…At the end of the day, write down how your day went.

Word of the Day: eidolon – n. 1. a specter, a phantom. 2. an idealized image (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.
