Wednesday Wits #49

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: What would you do with a magic wand?

Sentence: Lovely Linda lavishly licked a large lollipop, causing quite a stir on the sidewalk outside Obermeyer’s General Store.

Paragraph: The Duntsmoor Estate auction was well underway by the time Hardesty and I managed to arrive. Ridiculous as it seemed, I could not help but think that we were being thwarted intentionally from attending: the wipers quit working during the storm, a tire blew out, and a falling tree barely missed us. We could only hope that we were in time to bid on item #235, the Edgar Allan Poe sketch of a pendulum.

Prompt: Name the sickest you have ever been.

Word of the Day: hispid adj. covered with rough bristles, stiff hairs, or small spines (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

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.
