Saturday Ideas #46

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: Where do you prefer to swim – pool, river/lake, or ocean?

Sentence: Lying on her belly, Kimberly reached under the dresser to retrieve her earring and became stuck.

Paragraph: Stafford James longed for quiet and privacy. Even though longing was not manly, he could not help it. He could not help being who he was or feeling what he felt. God had made him the way he was and everyone needed to accept that as fact. His silly sisters did, although not without snickering sometimes. They actually used his insights into men to understand their boyfriends, but they did not want to hear about his boyfriends.

Prompt: Make a list of people you know who are/were tormented.

Word of the Day: hoyden n : a girl or woman of saucy, boisterous, or carefree behavior (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.

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.
