Friday Notions #61

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 hard do you try at everything you do?

Sentence: For Howard, sloth was the worst of the seven deadly sins.

Paragraph: His black ops training was useless against these heathens. He had been rendered unconscious and woke to find himself stripped, gagged, blindfolded, and perfectly bound to a chair, remarkably with his bare butt sitting upon a comfortable cushion. Armed with only his senses of hearing and smell, he felt too vulnerable. With the air a pleasant temperature and filled with tantalizing aromas, this was so unlike any other interrogation he had undergone that for the first time in his life he felt a feathery fear flitting along his nerves.

Prompt: Name the first tree you climbed.

Word of the Day: bibliolater 1 : one having excessive reverence for the letter of the Bible  2 : one overly devoted to books (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, 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.
