Friday Notions #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: What necessity could you live without?

Sentence: Jane Jullian jerked awake hours before the alarm clock buzzed.

Paragraph: Gabble spewed from Arnold’s mouth, startling his wife and children at his bedside. Not understanding the dismay on their faces, he continued talking nonsense, which in his mind were normal sentences. However, frustration eventually set in and he shut his mouth, which drew them closer with concern, patting his arms in sympathy and pity. He felt ridiculous and clamped his eyes shut.

Prompt: Describe how/when you acquired your worst sunburn.

Word of the Day: internecine adj. 1 orig., full of slaughter or destruction  2 deadly or harmful to both sides of a group involved in a conflict, as a civil war; mutually destructive or harmful  3 of or involving conflict within a group (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.

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.
