Friday Notions #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: What do you feel you are missing out on?

Sentence: Incessant demands on his time was turning mild-mannered Wendell Jumes into a smoking volcano.

Paragraph: With fists on hips, Sadie studied the wide beds of coleus along her front walkway with much despair. Incideous mealy bugs covered every plant, every stem and once-gorgous leaf. Donning her gardening gloves, Sadie yanked every plant up and threw it onto the lawn beyond the beds. After the fertile soil was fully exposed, she enthusiastically stomped on and ground down every remnant of the infected flora and, hopefully, every measly mealy bug too. Thoroughly engrossed in her efforts, Sadie did not notice that several neighbors and the mail carrier had gathered on the sidewalk to watch her performance.

Prompt: Explain what you dislike the most about shopping.

Word of the Day: lese majesty – n. 1. an insult to a sovereign or ruler. 2. (humorous) presumptuous behavior (Oxford American Dictionary, Heald Colleges Edition, 1980)

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