Thursday Thoughts #48

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: Which type of neighbor drives you bonkers?

Sentence: WIth each disappointment her shoulders slumped more and the light in her big hazel eyes dimmed.

Paragraph: Livid with rage, Denton had no business driving. The road was slick with mist, visibility virtually nil on the curving mountain road. But he had driven this road all his life and knew each inch of it, could traverse it by heart, which was exactly what he was doing. However, instinct had nothing to do with mudslides and the one ahead of him covered the road, causing him to sail off the mountain. In the seconds he was airborne, the fog parted and he saw an eagle.

Prompt: Identify a time when you left out an ingredient in a recipe and the resultant taste difference.

Word of the Day: trendoid n : a trendy person (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.
