Sunday Ponderings #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: What do you hope is invented in the next five years?

Sentence: Why didn’t anybody believe her?

Paragraph: It was happening again – she was losing herself. She did not get it. She would meet someone special who, in turn, thought she was such a unique woman with an excellent mind and self-confidence. Each one had been so interested in her opinions on everything and listened to her. Then, after about a year, she no longer awed them and they stopped introducing her with pride. They began taking her for granted, and the harder she tried to please them, the less appreciative they were. So she started keeping her unwanted opinions to herself and became mousy, which was so unlike the vivacious woman they had been attracted to. If she could just figure out why they stopped admiring her, maybe she could end the cycle. 

Prompt: Name your favorite way to pass the time in bad weather.

Word of the Day: fremitus n : a sensation felt by a hand placed on a part of the body (as the chest) that vibrates during speech (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
