Thursday Thoughts #74

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 many times have you been emotionally burned?

Sentence: Sexy Sheila Sampson shocked everyone by eloping with old Olaf Olsen.

Paragraph: Awake, but with eyes still shut, Amelia could tell it was sunny out. Light streamed around the edges of the blinds. Another bright day, she sighed to herself. No point in turning on the weather channel; with nothing but blue sky, there would be zero chance of rain. Last week, Rowdy’s Feed and Seed began posting on its sign the number of days without rain. Today’s would read 105. Amelia wanted to protest to mother nature by staying in bed until miles-high clouds gathered darkly into a severe storm and relief ensued. But that was just not possible or realistic; with four kids her protest days were over.

Prompt: Name the person who inadvertently guided you from taking the wrong path or making a bad decision.

Word of the Day: uliginousadj. growing in swamps or muddy places. (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.
