Wednesday Wits #36

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 do you feel is a sign of weakness?

Sentence: Fortunately, I have a high threshhold of pain.

Paragraph: When I was little, I was afraid of almost everything: animals, bugs, chickens, turkeys, reptiles, and flying balls. As long as they were caged or fenced in, I really enjoyed looking at cute, living things. But if they were free and within ten feet of me, I would run away screaming like a girl. And, although it was my idea to join Little League, I would freeze at bat everytime, fearing that the ball was going to hit me, which it did on occasion. Dad changed all that silliness when I was twelve – he died.

Prompt: Name your favorite cousin.

Word of the Day: ithyphallic – adj. 1. of or pertaining to the phallus carried in ancient festivals of Dionysus. 2. portrayed with an erect penis, as the figures of satyrs in Greek vase painting. 3. indecent; salacious. (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.
