Friday Notions #52

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: Do you prefer to give or receive advice about love?

Sentence: I wasn’t exactly prepared when disaster struck.

Paragraph: The sun was too bright, the meadow too green, my heart too full. It could not last, I told myself and began to expect bad things. My smile did not dwell within anymore. I saw only doom, where there was none, but I could not help myself. The downward spiral was not healthy, but I could not release myself from its grasp. I became so moribund that Alex began to shun me, unable to abide the gloom.

Prompt: Relate how you deal with unwelcome advances.

Word of the Day: arrogate vt 1 a : to claim or seize without justification¬† b : to make undue claims to having : ASSUME¬† 2 : to claim on behalf of another : ASCRIBE (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.

  1. I love these thoughts and prompts. I love the Poirot quote even more.
