Friday Notions #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: To where do your idle thoughts lead you?

Sentence: Arless Montague had never been so afraid in all his 49 years on earth.

Paragraph: As she bounced about on the golf cart, Crissy Daniels seriously considered getting rid of her breasts. They got in the way of her golf swing and attracted unwanted attention. They wiggled when she walked and jiggled when she ran. She was fed up with being uncomfortable. Skin-on-skin prevented her from going braless, but she had found no comfortable bra. It’s not like I’m going to need them anymore, she thought.

Prompt: Describe the scariest road on which you have ever traveled.

Word of the Day: metonymy  – n. the use of the name of one object or concept for that of another to which it is related or of which it is a part, as “scepter” for “sovereignty.” (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.

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, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 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.
