Friday Notions #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 makes you abandon a book you are reading or writing?

Sentence: Gene wondered angrily why his brain would not shut up.

Paragraph: Mrs. Gump did not quite get it right: Life is not like a box of chocolates. Chocolates are not sour or rotten or evil. You may not know what kind of filling you will bite into, but you can be certain it will never break your teeth or make you puke. No, Mrs. G., life is more like a beautific meadow with mines. You meander or play among the green grass and plentiful blooms, thinking about your baby’s first laugh and BLAM! some part of you is destroyed. You become more like a blind man wading through an alligator swamp.

Prompt: Name your favorite sport and explain why you enjoy it.

Word of the Day: fantasticate – v.t. to make or render fantastic (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.

About Cyranette

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, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 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.
