Thursday Thoughts #30

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: About what are you suspicious or paranoid?

Sentence: The flaming sun was setting, fanning out for all to see, but no one was watching.

Paragraph: Dr. Isaac Gulliverstone announced his new scientific breakthrough, giving his seven-year-old son most of the credit. Three years earlier, little Davey had declared that he hated vegetables and no amount of coaxing, teasing, or reasoning would change his mind: “I’m not going to eat anything but mac and cheese, pbj, fish sticks, hamburgers, French fries, chips, cereal, and ice cream until everything else tastes like doughnuts!” From that time forward, Gulliverstone began monkeying with mother nature to alter the unappealing taste of nutritious vegetables.

Prompt: Make a list of all the words you can create from “sandstone.”

Word of the Day: adscititious – adj.  added or derived from an external source; additional. (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.
