Saturday Ideas #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: Are you a middle child?

Sentence: Intelligence Director, Keenan Morley, entered the empty conference room and distributed the hastily prepared, secret reports around the gleaming oval table.

Paragraph: Ever since his father pointed it out, the cadence of tires crossing bridge sections – ka-thunk, ka-thunk, a-thunk-a-thunk, ka-thunk – made music. Before long, Randy realized rhythmic sounds were everywhere in everyday life and in non-instrumental things: lids popping with steam; flip-flops on cement; clicking heels; doors whooshing open and close; shooshing of revolving doors; canes tapping; wooden floors creaking; coffee makers dripping; water steaming from a hot skillet; rain plopping or dripping. Randy Revere recognized the music of life and it infused his heart and mind.

Prompt: Name your favorite type of puzzle.

Word of the Day: fulvous – adj. dull reddish-yellow or brownish-yellow; tawny (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.
