Sunday Ponderings #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: How likely is it that you will dramatically alter your appearance this year?

Sentence: “What would you like me to do, bay-bee?” she whispered warmly into my ear.

Paragraph: The interview had not gone well at all. Despite hours of preparation and coaching, she had screwed up. With head down, she quick-stepped to the bus stop and waited behind the shelter. She did not want to talk or smile or be acknowledged. She just wanted to get home as fast as possible, but she had no money for a cab. As the bus pulled up to the curb, she followed the others but stumbled. Simultaneously smacking her forehead on the edge of the top step and her chin on the step below, she blacked out.

Prompt: List five places you would like to visit while you are still young.

Word of the Day: tribadism n. homosexuality between women; lesbianism (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.
