Sunday Ponderings #27

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: For whom do you have the most compassion?

Sentence: Unused to sleeping alone, Raoul tossed and turned throughout the night.

Paragraph: Dominque Raley challenged herself daily: get up, get busy, do something, go somewhere, find some joy. After seven months, she had managed to achieve all but the last. Joy was not a goal she could fathom yet. Callie’s death would forever be unabatable. Thankfully, Dominques closest friends did not try to cheer her up, did not push her into smiling. As they continued to see the sorrow suffused within her, they wisely, patiently provided only solace and activity to help her get through the staggering grief.

Prompt: Make up a secret code and decide with whom you will share it.

Word of the Day: drugget – n. 1. a rug from India woven of coarse hair with cotton or jute. 2. a fabric woven wholly or partly of wool formerly used for clothing (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.
