Wednesday Wits #68

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 prone to digress?

Sentence: Caitlin did not realize how stifled her upbringing had been, until she found herself in a locker room full of naked, chattering college girls.

Paragraph: Within the deep recesses of his mind, Claude found startling treasures. They revealed themselves only in REM and, although they did not occur every night, each discovery was more spectacular than the last. To reach them, he had to delve into the oddest and/or most extraordinary of locations – elephantine or creepy caves, dark and gnarly forests, glowing and rebellious seas, tropical volcanoes. After each adventure, he would waken with a horrendous headache but also a yearning to never open his eyes again.

Prompt: Identify what/who you would have no trouble living without.

Word of the Day: ascensive adj : rising or tending to rise (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.

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.
