Sunday Ponderings #39

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 your favorite syndicated cartoon strip?

Sentence: Foolish thoughts were forever filling Damara’s head.

Paragraph: Peter’s hero was FDR, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Instead of fairytales or cowboy stories, Papa Joe, Peter’s great-grandfather, began telling the toddler all about the “greatest man in the world.” He kept it up until his death, when the boy was nearly twelve years old. Although rather shy, Peter eagerly spoke up in history class whenever the Depression and WWII came up. Before graduating high school, he began a campaign to put President Roosevelt’s face on Mt. Rushmore.

Prompt: Name a person you would like to hear from in a seance.

Word of the Day: carrefour – n. 1. a crossroads.  2. a public square; marketplace (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.
