Friday Notions #42

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: How many times have you not helped a stranger in need?

Sentence: Within the literary world, Isabel Svatora was the undisputed queen of anaphora.

Paragraph: Shane Fondeaux had never inspired to be in this dire predicament. He managed to get along at Trinity Hope Academy; he made it through university without any major disappointments; his boss, R. J. Reilly, had always appreciated his efforts, mundane though they had been; and Eloise Brinks adored him. So how did he wind up on trial for planting a bomb at Chesterfield United Bank?

Prompt: Describe when you first got poetry.

Word of the Day: quindecillion n. 1. a cardinal number represented in the U.S. by 1 followed by 48 zeros, and in Great Britain by 1 followed by 90 zeros. – adj. 2. amounting to one quindecillion in number (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.
