Saturday Ideas #59

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: Which one of your grandfather’s true stories is/was your favorite?

Sentence: Felix was concentrating so singlemindedly on his fly fishing that he did not notice the foul-smelling bear watching him.

Paragraph: She lay at the bottom of the stairs in agony. No one was around to help, so there was no point in yelling. She could imagine his disgust and scorn at her ineptness and gritted her teeth at her clumsiness. He had only asked her to do one thing, but she had failed. She found herself wishing the fall had broken her neck, then he would have been rid of her.

Prompt: Describe your old or current stomping ground. If you are too young to have a stomping ground, ask an older relative or neighbor about his/hers.

Word of the Day: volkslied n : a folk song (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 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.
