Wednesday Wits #32

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: Do your give your characters traits inherent in your family members, friends, and/or co-workers?

Sentence: Focused on a dragonfly, a huge bullfrog was easily netted by a swamper who loved frog legs.

Paragraph: As the heat grew unbearable, Baroni’s ice cream shop became packed. Melting streams ran down all sizes and textures of chins and dripped from fingers holding the cones. Although the frozen delights did not last long in the unairconditioned store, the lickers did not seem to care. Just a hint of relief was enough to temporarily cool customers down.

Prompt: Describe the pleasure of cool water upon your body on a hot day.

Word of the Day: accidence – n : a part of grammar that deals with inflections (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

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