Saturday Ideas #66

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: Which delights you more: the sun after a good rain or rain after too many sunny days?

Sentence: As soon as she got home from the hospital, Penny penned a letter of absolute dissatisfaction with the medical center’s extremely slow release procedures.

Paragraph: Hank and I were in our usual seats, munching on popcorn, when an elderly couple sat down in front of us. Immediately, the woman’s overdose of scent assaulted my sensitive nose. Aw geez, here she is again! Not for the first time, I wondered how her husband could stand it. I nudged Hank, shaking my head and waving my hand in front of my face to divert the air. We moved back two rows, and the lights dimmed while I searched for my inhaler.

Prompt: Name your favorite summertime hangout.

Word of the Day: delimiter n : a character that marks the beginning or end of a unit of data (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.
