Tuesday Tips #70

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 part of godliness do you understand?

Sentence: Deirdre Jean Forster was worn-out well before her fiftieth birthday, but that did not lessen her family’s demands.

Paragraph: Tanick Abernathy had been born without the necessary human qualities – heart, soul, and conscience – to help him get along with others. He never moved within the womb, which worried his mother but did not bother the obstetrician. Since he slept through the night as soon as his parents brought him home, they were disappointed that their beautiful son did not require lullabies or rocking to help him sleep. The only time he cried was to protest being held or touched unnecessarily, preferring to be left alone. His first laugh occurred when his mother scalded herself.

Prompt: Recall the last time you were irresponsible.

Word of the Day: lenity n. 1. the quality or state of being mild or gentle.  2. a lenient act. (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.
