Saturday Ideas #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 write to live or live to write?

Sentence: It twernt nobody’s fault what happened to me.

Paragraph: Everything was such a blur – literally. I’d forgotten my glasses, not necessarily on purpose, but I forgot to put them back on after trying to make my eyelashes more noticeable.  When I heard the school bus coming, I rushed downstairs and gathered all my daily junk. Being the first one on, I took my usual seat behind Mrs. Elway, who kept silent with her eyes straight ahead. Sometimes I wondered if she was driving in her sleep.

Prompt: Pretend you are the opposite of who you are and write down the reactions of others towards you.

Word of the Day: expurgate – v. censor, remove, expunge, cut, bowdlerize, clean up, sanitize, purge, soften. (ROGET’S SUPERTHESAURUS, Marc McCutcheon, 1995)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.


About Cyranette

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, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 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.
