Sunday Ponderings #44

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 the hardest work you have ever done?

Sentence: The baby slept, unaware of his significance.

Paragraph: Cora, Doreen, and Sally looked at each other’s puzzled faces and shook their heads. The first thing their younger cousin, Lloyd, whom they had not seen in over forty years, had said after greeting them was absolutely creepy: “I remember when you visited one Christmas and I climbed out my window onto the roof and watched you shower from the bathroom window.” He had related his naughtiness with such a proud grin, as if they should think him clever or be flattered, that they were instantly repulsed and rendered speechless. Oh, my god, they thought in unison.

Prompt: Make a list of places you would rather be on this day.

Word of the Day: guttate adj. 1 in the form of drops  2 spotted, as with drops (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.


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, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 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.
