Thursday Thoughts #31

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 could you go on and on about?

Sentence: When petrified, Pearce always resorted to humor.

Paragraph: She had not been driving very long on the narrow road paralleling the White River when she pulled over. The clear, deep water beckoned to her, like a 50-meter pool. With the forest for shelter, she disrobed to her underwear and dove into the chill water, swimming underwater until she needed air. Turning onto her back, she smiled up at the sky, then rolled over and dove back down again. Being so at home in the water, she often thought that perhaps she had been a dolphin in a previous life. She sat down on the rocky bottom and looked up at the light above, feeling totally at peace.

Prompt: Give the directions to your favorite restaurant.

Word of the Day: faradize – v.t. to stimulate or treat (muscles or nerves) with induced alternating electric current (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.
