Sunday Ponderings #71

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: Now that the year is half over, are you behind, ahead, or on time with your writing?

Sentence: The last rays of the setting sun glistened on the dark blood, drawing night creatures to the edge of the jungle in anticipation of a feast.

Paragraph: Before blowing out his seven candles, Carlo wished with all his might that his daddy would come home soon. He wanted to spend time with him before school started. The four dads and one mother of his friends at his party had all come home months ago. It was not fair that Carlo’s daddy was still over in Afganistan. As he opened his unsmiling eyes, he also wished no one had come to his party. He did not feel like celebrating.

Prompt: Find something buried in your closet and describe how it came to be there.

Word of the Day: whencesoever adv., conj. from whatever place, source, or cause (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. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
