Saturday Ideas #37

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 is the hungriest or thirstiest you have ever been?

Sentence: Even in large cities scavenging opossums and raccoons can be found.

Paragraph: Looking down the steep, pristine ski slope, Rafton held back. He loved being the first one on the mountain, no matter how early he had to get up. A fresh layer of snow had fallen during the night, satisfying him even more. This is perfecto! He paused a moment longer, blowing out his breath into the 20 degree air. Then off he went with a whoosh and a yell, “Eat your heart out, Johnny boy!”

Prompt: Name five spices you must have in your kitchen.

Word of the Day: cislunar – adj. on this side of the moon, between the moon and the earth (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, 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.
