Saturday Ideas #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: From whom does your best quality come?

Sentence: Instinctually, he gathered his children into his inadequate arms as the tornado roared towards them.

Paragraph: Professor Phillips gave a riveting lecture this morning that stuck with me.  I left the hall in a daze of epiphany, as anyone does when they realize something for the first time. Clarity of thought, at any age, can either lighten the heart with wonder or darken it with sadness. By the time I returned to my dorm, I could not remember acknowledging or speaking to anyone. However, when I opened my notebooks, it appeared I had taken notes in every class. How odd.

Prompt: Identify the first person who pushed you down and made you bleed.

Word of the Day: ululant adj : having a howling sound : WAILING (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.


About Cyranette

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.
