Friday Notions #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: In what way have you remained a child?

Sentence: Ted scared everyone when he had a stroke, mostly himself.

Paragraph: They found little Charlie Walker the next day, under the old maple tree at the edge of Gunderson’s property. His naked body was covered in fire ants, but he still wore the Darth Vader mask. The ants were the thickest on his hands, sticky with candy. His Halloween bag, also crawling with ants, lay on its side, near his outstretched right hand. Deputy Simpson, pale and trembling, stood with his back to the body, well away from the ants, waiting for the coroner to arrive and remove the mask.

Prompt: Recall when you first fell in love with spring.

Word of the Day: moiety – n. 1 a half; either of two equal, or more or less equal, parts  2 an indefinite share or part  3 Anthrop. either of two primary subdivisions in some tribes (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.

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.
