Wednesday Wits #25

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: Do you like going barefoot?

Sentence: Within the mass of wandering Jew against the back fence, Alika was sure she saw the face of a very large cheshire cat smiling surveying her.

Paragraph: Denise Butterworth was a stickler for rules. A quiet person with little control over her life, Denise reveled in catching people disobeying rules and regulations. These miscreants she would immediately report to the proper authorities. Unfortunately, Ben Figstick did not apppreciate being called out for using his cell phone in a no-cell-phone-use area. His thorough tongue-lashing left Miss Butterworth quaking in her sensible shoes.

Prompt: Define your “finest hour.”

Word of the Day: estancia – n. (in Spanish America) a landed estate or a cattle ranch  (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.

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.
