Sunday Ponderings #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: Which do you more easily make – friends or enemies?

Sentence: Hearing only road noise and incessant ringing in my ears, desperation filled me as I zoomed down the highway.

Paragraph: When airport security told Sherie Donald they were going to pat down her five-year-old son, she balked. Big time! She asked for the head of the airport and airport security. She was going to sue them for lack of common sense and war crimes and child abuse. After the horrific experience that would stay with that 6-year-old girl a few weeks earlier, there was no way in hell anyone was going to touch her son. Terrorism and national security be damned!

Prompt: If time travel was possible, where would you go? Would you stay there? Why that particular place and/or time?

Word of the Day: mediagenic – adj. attractive¬†and appealing to viewers and readers of the news media (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.
