Wednesday Wits #51

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: To whom did you first lie?

Sentence: Unfortunately, having a cesarean section did not block Anita’s ears from hearing the startled gasps of the medical team on the other side of the drape.

Paragraph: Jonah sat huddled against the huge tree with tears rolling down his filthy face. Next to him, watching and whining between pants, waited Toby, his dog eyes darting back and forth across the boy. Having run hard and far, the mutt’s tongue dripped sweat. Water would have been welcomed by both of them, but they were far from the creek now. The creek where the Indians had left the body of the boy’s father’s with three arrows in his back.

Prompt: Name the first book that inspired you to think outside the box.

Word of the Day: carrefour n. 1. a crossroads.  2. a public square; marketplace. (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, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 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.
