Sunday Ponderings #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: What is your plan for the day?

Sentence: The black wreath remained on the Rafferty’s door long after the mourning period.

Paragraph: The Sheffield Police Department occupied the top four floors of the Huntington Building. The bottom floor had been deemed too vunerable due to the all-glass storefront. The Huntington had been built in 1951 as a department store by wealthy newcomer, George Huntington III, who had deemed Sheffield an appropriate investment for his money, since the interstate would bring millions of tourists to the Lake Sheffield area. Unfortunately, George died suddenly eight years later sans any family. However, his vision became realized as the town’s population quadrupled.

Prompt: Name an interesting ancestor.

Word of the Day: oncogene n : a gene having the potential to cause a normal cell to become cancerous (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.

About Cyranette

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, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 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.
