Wednesday Wits #45

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: Does your intellect alarm or amaze others?

Sentence: When Samantha Reese was eighteen years old, she legally changed her name to Moon Child and left Harrisburg forever.

Paragraph: Volcanic mudflows, called lahars, can occur without warning and do not require an eruption from Mt. Rainier. The 150,000 people of the Puyallup Valley would have only 45 minutes to reach higher ground. The fertile valley floor consists of several lahars, so the threat is not insignificant. As for Mt. Rainier, it last erupted in 1894. When it blows, it will be worse than the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. Living close to disaster has always thrilled me.

Prompt: Describe intolerable behavior by a family member.

Word of the Day: intervocalic adj : immediately preceded and immediately followed by a vowel (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.
