Saturday Ideas #60

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: How interested are you in family history/ancestry?

Sentence: A gentle breeze blew onto the waiting shore.

Paragraph: She watched him sleep, reaching for her. She was not able to reassure him that she was all right now. More than all right. She had no more worries, no more feelings, no more pain. She was free of everything and, although she had been allowed this brief return, she found he no longer mattered. She belonged to the Universe now.

Prompt: Identify the two possessions you would hope to rescue should your home be on fire.

Word of the Day: termagant – n. 1. a violent, turbulent, or brawling woman. 2. (cap) a mythical diety believed in the Middle Ages to be worshiped by the Muslims; portrayed in morality plays as a violent, overbearing personage. – adj. 3. violent; turbulent; brawling; shrewish.  (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.
