Thursday Thoughts #57

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: Besides writing, do you have other creative abilities?

Sentence: Charlie Redtree interested me from the moment I saw him.

Paragraph: Momma and me have this ‘tuition. She tole me we got it from her daddy’s side of the family, all the way back ta Ireland. I never thought nothin’ ’bout it ’til Billy Murdock knocked me down after I sed he’s gonna die. He sat on me an’ put dirt in my mouth an’ tole me ta shet up, so I did. When I got home, Momma sat me down, without me tellin’ her what happened, an’ splained things ta me. Ever since, even tho’ I wern’t real sure what she was talkin’ ’bout, I kept my ‘tuition ta myself.

Prompt: Describe how you reward yourself for completing a writing assignment.

Word of the Day: scroop v.i. 1. to emit a harsh, grating sound. – n. 2. a scrooping sound.  3. the rustling sound that is natural to silk fabric but can be processed into other fabrics.  (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. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
