Sunday Ponderings #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 reality show(s) do you watch? Why?

Sentence: Harriet happened to raise her head just moments before walking into the terror of the neighborhood.

Paragraph: What did she need besides garlic bread and bananas? Hank closed he eyes and shook his head, standing with his hand on the top of the car outside the store parking lot. Once again he hadn’t made a list. She offered to give him one, but did he take it? Nooooooo! “I can remember three things, ya snit,” he had told her. Idiot! He walked into the store chanting silently: garlic bread, bananas, and… garlic bread, bananas, and…garlic bread, bananas, and… His “Damn!” drew some looks, but he was oblivious.

Prompt: Describe your typical day off.

Word of the Day: oppugn vt. to oppose with argument; criticize adversely; call in question; controvert (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.
