Friday Notions #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: How far would you drive/ride for a good meal?

Sentence: All heads turned as Damien Colter swept into the ballroom like a hurricane and headed towards Miss Angelina McBride.

Paragraph: She was growing bone-weary. They had lashed her tightly to a pile beneath the wharf, making sure the barnacles cut into her back. As the tide rose, she was lifted off her feet, the barnacles scraping in another direction. She gasped at the stinging of the saltwater on her wounds. As the water deepened, her bloodied back would probably attract some sharks, but she was just about beyond caring. No one had a clue where she was; no one knew she was missing. By dawn she would most likely be dead – drowned or eaten.

Prompt: Name the day that your life changed.

Word of the Day: opponency n. opposition; resistance (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.

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.
