Friday Notions #35

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 a klutz?

Sentence: Toby tensed, gripping the armrests and squeezing his eyes shut, as Dr. Oliver brought the buzzing drill closer to his sore tooth.

Paragraph: The moon crested the horizon long before the sun went down, as though they were competing for dominance of the sky. Karen lay in the hammock and watched the playful orbs illuminating each other, briefly, her thoughts commiserating with the breadth of their separation. However, the sun and moon were able to see each other occasionally, unlike her and Ken. They had been married only three weeks before his mission came up and he had to leave.

Prompt: Compare apples to oranges.

Word of the Day: kludge – n : a system and esp. a computer system made up of poorly matched components (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.

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.
