Wednesday Wits #29

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 many dreams have you realized?

Sentence: After Stephen flawlessly recited Walt Whitman’s “Little Orphan Annie,” Professor Numnutts asked him to repeat it.

Paragraph: Celene hated the stink of the beach with its dead fish and seaweed. She much preferred living on a river or a lake with fresh water, but Arthur had long ago declared that his soul was linked to the ocean. Therefore, she had adjusted, just as she had with her other two husbands – until she could not take it anymore.

Prompt: Name the thing that makes you sneeze but that you put up with anyway.

Word of the Day: fustigate – v.i. 1. to cudgel; beat. 2. to criticize harshly; castigate. (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.
