Sunday Ponderings #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: Are you easily swayed?

Sentence: My life changed the moment I saw Aloysius Reynolds III.

Paragraph: Forbid is such a strong, daring, tantalizing word. Mother knew that I would do whatever she forbid me to do. She got a lot out of me by using that word, duping me into doing all sorts of chores, deeds, and actions. She played me well with her reverse psychology until I hit puberty.

Prompt: Identify something you never discussed with your parents.

Word of the Day: doucer n : a conciliatory gift (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.
