Thursday Thoughts #26

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 much variety do you have in your life?

Sentence: As the last, small casket was brought into the church, even Reverend Lucas had a difficult time rising to his feet for the Lord’s Prayer.

Paragraph: John S. Pettigrew had not known the true meaning of the word “relentless” until Roxanne Dubois came into his life. As star reporter for the Austin Daily Record, Dubois was proving to be more determined than a pitbull. In fact, he thought he would prefer to have been latched onto by the jaws of a mindless animal than the doggedness of said intelligent female. Apparently, while dining at Threadgill’s, Dubois had overheard a snippet of conversation pertaining to him and his company, JSP Industries, which had piqued her too-curious interest.

Prompt: Scan the obituary section of a newspaper and write a eulogy for someone.

Word of the Day: messuage – n. Law a dwelling house with its outbuildings and adjacent land (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.
