Wednesday Wits #54

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 part of your life do you wish you had more time to focus on?

Sentence: It wasn’t that he talked funny or had the ugliest nose in the world or awful breath, it was his pure stupidity that repulsed me.

Paragraph: As I peered up at the brambled aerie, the old knight’s words calmed my pounding heart a little. It wasn’t that I was afraid of the Clothilde sleeping within its high nest, but that I was somewhat winded after trekking up the bloody steep mountainside. We slayers live in vales and ride horses when we can. The climbing is always the hardest part, contrary to popular opinion. Sneaking up on a giant beast with the ability to eat you in one gulp or crisp you with one breath became second nature once you got the hang of it.

Prompt: List three characteristics you admire the most.

Word of the Day: cloze adj : of, relating to, or being a test of reading comprehension that involves having the person being tested supply words which have been systematically deleted from a text (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.
