Sunday Ponderings #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: Have you ever been called a genius?

Sentence: State Senator Bresdan Lloyed had no qualms about using dilatory practices for certain votes.

Paragraph: The coffee house was not packed, but it was early yet. Binky fought the urge to look up everytime the door opened. She was not sure she wanted a full house or not, when it came time to get up and deliver her new poem. Well, it was not exactly new-new, but she had kept it hidden for years. It was too personal, too painful, but she really felt its presence was holding her back from moving on. She needed to let it go.

Prompt: Name an ability you do not have.

Word of the Day: praetorian adj  syn  CORRUPT  2, mercenary, unethical, unprincipled, unscrupulous, venal (Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, 1976)

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.
