Sunday Ponderings #56

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 many times have you screwed up?

Sentence: Devereaux Davies was one hell of a man in these parts.

Paragraph: Buster McGee could not leave me alone. He was always pestering me about something and took to following me everywhere when we weren’t in school. He must have thought I was automatically his friend just because his family moved next door and because I didn’t push him away. However, due to being a Mormon, I couldn’t push anyone away. We had to befriend everyone, but that didn’t make Buster get on my nerves any less.

Prompt: Name your “finest moment” so far.

Word of the Day: geomorphology – n. the study of the characteristics, origin, and development of the form or surface features of the earth or other celestial bodies. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)

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.
