Wednesday Wits #64

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: Do you have music in your soul?

Sentence: Lester wondered why he woke each morning with fits of sneezing.

Paragraph: Were you around when the moon blew up? I was only a toddler and don’t remember anything except that everyone in my family started acting crazy all of a sudden. One minute we were eating dinner and then we weren’t. Mom, Dad, Aunt Fauna, grandPaw, and my two older brothers were blinking on their imbedded microchips. I didn’t have one yet. Back then you had to be at least five years old to receive one, no matter how smart you were. Those archaic chips were not like the ones implanted at birth nowadays; they had no age sensors  to filter out scary stuff or age-sensitive material, let alone automatic shutdowns. We’ve come so far! Anyway, the fear on their faces made me cry, but they ignored me and ran outside.

Prompt: Describe the first of anything that took your breath away.

Word of the Day: impetrate vt : 1 to obtain by request or entreaty  2 : to ask for : ENTREAT (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.
