Thursday Thoughts #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: What movie genre do you prefer?

Sentence: The whispering and giggling of the boys in the back seat tickled her ears.

Paragraph: Gusty spurts of wind flopped around a loosely attached scarecrow in the fallow field, disturbing a family of field mice nestled in the moldy straw stuffing. A scary ride indeed. Papa Mouse had thought he had found the perfect home for his ever-growing family, but this particular field had not been replanted. All nearby food had long since been eaten, causing him to venture skittishly further and further from home, making him easy prey for fox or hawk. His whiskers kept twitching as he stared outside at the dangerous journey before him.

Prompt: Describe the last time you were impetuous. What made you rebel, act out of character, or say, “Why not?” Were there any unpleasant consequences?

Word of the Day: gittern – n : a medieval guitar (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
