Friday Notions #55

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 long did you stare at your very first paycheck before whooping up and down?

Sentence: The rain water sluicing down the gutter floated the slightly curled fingers of a small hand lying in its path.

Paragraph: A feeling of dread creeped up her spine as she slowly climbed the stairs. The sounds coming from the third floor should not be there. When she reached the landing, the old wood creaked. As she paused, silence assailed her ears. Then came a bumping and scraping from behind the transomed door. Loudly stomping her feet to scare away any unearthly intruders, she noticed a faint, wobbling glow when she looked up at the dirty glass rectangle.

Prompt: Expand on your phobia(s).

Word of the Day: incondite adj : badly put together : CRUDE (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.


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.
