Wednesday Wits #47

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: Exactly where will you be at noon today?

Sentence: Penny Perriwinkle had a penchant for picking pockets in Percy, Pennsylvania.

Paragraph: Striding up the the steps of City Hall, Roger Cobb was on a mission. He planted himself at the desk of the Mayor’s secretary. A very lovely girl, as a matter of fact, but nevermind that. After stating his case, she nodded her golden mane towards a long oak bench against the opposite wall. He watched her go into the Mayor’s office. Such an attractive, well-attired body. When she closed the door, Roger turned his head to her desk, Mimsy Striker, trying to focus on what he was going to reasonably discuss with the Mayor. Mimsy, such an old-fashioned name for such a modern girl.

Prompt: Give an account of the first time you felt intimidated.

Word of the Day: colliery n. a coal mine and connected buildings (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.
