Friday Notions #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: What do you think is the most ridiculous cable show you have seen, if only briefly?

Sentence: Estranged from his parents, Philip learned of his father’s death on the national news.

Paragraph: She woke up prone on hard pavement, she surmised, but her eyes wouldn’t open to verify. The right side of her head was lying on wetness, and it smelled like vomit. Her brain told her to spring up immediately, but her body could not comply. She was cold, her butt was bare, and she hurt all over, but she was alive. She had to move or she would throw up again. She had to get her face out of the puking mess, get up on her hands and knees, and…what? At a snail’s pace, she dragged her left hand to her face so her fingers could determine what was wrong with her eyes.

Prompt: Write a joke that would be appropriate for all ages.

Word of the Day: yottabyte n : one septillion bytes (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

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.
