Sunday Ponderings #34

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 you put on one sock and one shoe at a time or both socks and then both shoes?

Sentence: Sweaty Sassy Mae whooped with glee as she ran off the edge of the abandoned limestone quarry into the deep, dark water below.

Paragraph: Cornelius the Great sat upon the huge throne of Schnitzlesneed and surveyed his royal advisors and loyal subjects. Although several, or all, in attendance may have thought that the enormous gold-plated chair was rather disproportionate for the size of the kingdom, a mere 10,000 hectares, such thoughts remained unspoken. Cornelius the Great would have brooked no notion that his lands or possessions were not prestigious. In fact, he felt he owed it to his countrymen to expand Schnitzlesneed, and that was the reason they had been summoned.

Prompt: Describe how you would rearrange the furnishings of a room in someone else’s home to make it more appealing.

Word of the Day: abecedarian – n. 1 a person learning the alphabet; beginning student  2 any beginner or novice – adj. 1 of the alphabet  2 elementary (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

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.
