Saturday Ideas #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 turns your world upside down?

Sentence: After only ten minutes of viewing the movie, a blanched Rosa and a grayish Geraldine walked out of the theater on shaky legs and sat on a bench for a few moments before approaching the manager to ask for their money back.

Paragraph: Pokey was a pug with a very curious nose. Everyday he poked along the sidewalks, poking his pug nose into all kinds of smells and rubbish. He particularly liked purple petunias, but his pug ears perked up whenever he happened to peak through a fence at a puffy Pekingese.

Prompt: Explain how you are misunderstood.

Word of the Day: hendecasyllabic adj  : consisting of 11 syllables or composed of verses of 11 syllables (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.
