Thursday Thoughts #33

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: Are you still living in your hometown?

Sentence: Jon’s robot, WA-444, refused to follow orders.

Paragraph: The handyman left the ladder braced against the side of the house on purpose. He planned to return later that night to spy on his next victim, the Townson’s budding teenage daughter. The four-day job had afforded him plenty of opportunity to slyly observe her body, which she coyly revealed to him in subtle ways. While staying out of everyone’s way, he managed to ingratiate himself with Mrs. Townson by his efficiency, professionalism, and courteousness. Thus, a false aura of safety and security had been established.

Prompt: Create a guide for raising well-adjusted children.

Word of the Day: quodlibet – 1 : a philosophical or theological point proposed for disputation; also : a disputation on such a point  2 : a whimsical combination of familiar melodies or texts (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.
