Thursday Thoughts #24

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: With what are you obsessed?

Sentence: After three years of therapy for OCD, Stella Alstern was no better; her whole family wanted a divorce.

Paragraph: Oswald Candy drove bus #77 for Evaston Independent School District. His five-mile route took him over the rickety Dumar Creek bridge, which caused him constant worry. EISD, the city of Evaston, and Richmond County knew about the instability of the historic structure and called in several engineers, who confirmed it was extremely unsafe. Since there was no money to fix or replace it, Candy’s route was diverted and expanded to seventeen miles.

Prompt: You are a cosmetic spy sent to Paris to glean a new perfume.

Word of the Day: divagate – v.i. 1 to wander about  2 to stray from the subject; digress  (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.


About Cyranette

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.
