Saturday Ideas #58

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: Do you believe in angels?

Sentence: While stopped at a redlight, Lucinda Rodriguez had an epiphany.

Paragraph: Sitting beside his grandfather’s gravestone, beneath the great branches of the old oak tree, Delbert wondered what dimension he lived in. He tried imagining what other Delberts existed in other places. Could he be a terrorist with explosives strapped to his chest? Did he have a beautiful girlfriend somewhere? Was he an alien or homeless or a clown? Was he grown-up and important? His grandfather always praised him and said he would be a great man one day, but how did he know? Had he seen him in another dimension? Was his grandfather only dead in this one?

Prompt: Describe your first taste of ice cream.

Word of the Day: cachinnatevi : to laugh loudly or immoderately (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.

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.
