Friday Notions #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: What part of your body do you dislike the most?

Sentence: Several days before the flood, Tremaine buried his pregnant wife near the river.

Paragraph: The atmosphere in and around the Filbert Auditorium vibrated with excitement. Ticket holders waiting in line, showing their tickets, ordering drinks, taking their seats, refreshing themselves in the bathroom, or just mulling around gave off an electricity that the Filbert had not experienced in some time. The buzz of activity backstage did not compare with the anticipation in the thousands of minds out front. Anticipation for the long awaited Voice of Perfection, an angel’s voice that never failed to produce tears of awe on the faces of listeners.

Prompt: Name your favorite poet.

Word of the Day: avulse – v.t. to pull off or tear away forcibly (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, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 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.
