Thursday Thoughts #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: Is the end of your current goal in sight?

Sentence: One bright Sunday, after a twenty-year absence, Bunny Moncreiss went to church.

Paragraph: On flat, bare feet Melville shuffled down the middle of Pole Creek Road, looking for fresh roadkill. Not that it would be too fresh this late in the day. His belly had been growling for some squirrel or ‘possum, but, since he’d been at it for several hours and nobody’d driven by him either way, he figured he was shoot outta luck. Hearing a rumbling behind him, Melville turned around and saw some dust blowing up a ways back. Some fool got no bidness goin’ that fast on this ol’ road. He stepped off into the dry cornfield on his right, until he recognized what was coming. Then, at the last minute, he raced across the road into the woods as fast as his scrawny legs would take him.

Prompt: Explain a time when you did not come to someone’s rescue.

Word of the Day: featly – adv 1 : in a graceful manner : NIMBLY  2 : in a suitable manner : PROPERLY  3 : with skill and ingenuity – adj : GRACEFUL, NEAT (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.
