Saturday Ideas #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: In what way are you a rebel?

Sentence: Uncle Baba was good at seething.

Paragraph: While other children had treehouses, I had the willow tree. It filled the back corner of our property down by the pond, and I sought refuge beneath its draping branches. Cocooned in green, I would lean against its trunk and read to my heart’s content or lay upon the soft grass and contemplate the sounds of nature. This was my house of worship, where God filled me with solace and contentment. Where I felt free from harm.   

Prompt: Give an account of feeling safe as a child.

Word of the Day: graupel n.  snow pellets or soft hail. (Oxford American Dictionary, Heald Colleges Edition, 1980) 

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.

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.
