Thursday Thoughts #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: Which 19th century author do you like the most?

Sentence: Dr. Olive Grant, world-renowned anthropologist, had no qualms about broadcasting her logical solution for the planet’s overpopulation problem.

Paragraph: Two little girls, probably 3- and 5-years-old, chattered and sang in the backseat of an old, green Dodge sedan. Their dad had parked in front of Deezle’s on the way to the grocery store, saying to his children that he would be right back. After a time, their play wore out, and the girls became antsy, as well as thirsty. Getting out of the car, they walked to the door into which their daddy had disappeared. As they pushed the door open, their thin silhouettes were outlined by the glaring sunlight.

Prompt: Explain from which ancestor(s) you inherited your traits.

Word of the Day: marasmus – n. a condition of progressive emaciation, esp. in infants, as from inability to assimilate food (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.
