Thursday Thoughts #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: How do you go about making friends?

Sentence: It had been a rough night.

Paragraph: Looking out at the moon rising over the pond, Saundra stood in the doorway with her back to me. I grabbed my sketch pad and drew her perfect form, partially covered by her long, tousled hair. She gave me just enough time to complete the beginnings of a painting before stepping down off the porch. The moonscape I could fill in later. I followed her outside and joined her in the refreshing water.

Prompt: Elucidate on the last time you were flummoxed.

Word of the Day: agnate n. 1. a relative whose connection is traceable exclusively though males.  2. any male relation on the father’s side – adj. 3. related or akin through males or on the father’s side.  4. allied or akin (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 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.
