Sunday Ponderings #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: Can you remember what amazed you as a child?

Sentence: Across the Kilderry, nestled under a rocky ledge, resided a family of ne’er’-do-wells.

Paragraph: When he saw more clumped and scattered white-tipped gray feathers, Willard wanted to kill the cat responsible. A pretty calico one that kept climbing into his backyard as if it belonged there, which is why he hated cats. They did as they pleased and could not be controlled. This time in its hunt, the birdbath had been knocked over. As Willard righted it, moved it away from the birdfeeder, and refilled it, he felt a twinge of guilt. By providing food for delightful chirping and singing birds, he was inadvertently supplying the cat with prey.

Prompt: Explain your most blissful day.

Word of the Day: griseous adj. gray; pearl-gray. (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.
