Sunday Ponderings #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: Have you almost come to blows with a sibling or other relative?

Sentence: Forty-five fabulously fat frogs finally finished flipping fifty-four fantastic, floating flapjacks.

Paragraph: Wandering Bear and Dancing Bear met over two hundred years ago in the cave of the midnight sun. Their tribes had come together for peace talks. It had been beneath a starry sky that the tall and trembling young warrior, nephew of the chief, had seen the mesmerizing young princess of the neighboring mountain tribe dancing in the moonlight upon the narrowest of ledges, the very ledge Wandering Bear used when he could not sleep. She had slipped away from the chanting elders, causing him to panic, for he had been given the honor to watch over Chief Dark Cloud’s daughter. He wanted to yank her out of harm’s way, but her sensuous movements kept him immobile, like a fly stuck to sweet tree sap.

Prompt: Name a truism you have recently come to realize, understand, and/or accept.

Word of the Day: numen n. divine or supernatural power or presence, esp. as associated with a particular place or object. (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.
