Saturday Ideas #72

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: How long has it been since you relaxed in a hammock?

Sentence: In the words of Nana Richie, “Ain’t nobody don’t wants what somebody else has.”

Paragraph: With a  head full of questions, Alva struck out for the library, wishing it opened earlier. She had been wide awake since predawn, wondering about the Isle of Lewis. Always intrigued by out-of-the-way places, this new one she had heard about on PBS could be linked to her ancestry. An online search had directed her to several books, fiction and nonfiction, but she hoped to find a bigger map than her monitor allowed. After waiting a moment for the automatic doors to swish open, she rushed inside.

Prompt: Name a time when something went terribly wrong in your life or in the life of someone you love.

Word of the Day: promulgate v.t. 1. to put into operation (a law, decree of a court, etc.) by formal proclamation.  2. to set forth or teach publicly ( a creed, doctrine, etc.). (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.

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.
