Tuesday Tips #40

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 number one ambition?

Sentence: The fusing of minds enthralled her.

Paragraph: Ten feet into the woods Hunter Browning braced himself against a towering pine and put a bead of red on a posing elk twenty yards away, its warm breath snorting out. After silently waiting for nearly half a day beyond the meadow, he had only seconds before his prize would wander or rush off and the shot would be gone. As if on cue, a falcon swooped down, and he captured both of them. The camera’s click, of course, spooked the magificent animal, whose four foot antlers narrowly missed batting the bird out of the air.

Prompt: Convince a nine-year-old that there really is a Santa Claus.

Word of the Day: limpsy or limpsey adj. limp, as from exhaustion or weakness (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.

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 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.
