Sunday Ponderings #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: Can you stop yourself from doing or saying something inappropriate?

Sentence: He loved making her sigh.

Paragraph: Lillie spend hours closely studying bugs in and around her mother’s flower beds and potted plants. She knew they were insects but, being only four, she liked the word bugs better. Butterflies, ladybugs, and bees were good for the garden. Pillbugs not so much, but she was fascinated by the way they instantly rolled up into littleĀ balls.

Prompt: Name your favorite flavor.

Word of the Day: fribble v.i. 1. to act in a foolish or frivolous manner; trifle. – v.t. 2. to waste foolishly (often fol. by away): to fribble away time. n. 3. a frivolous person or thing. (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.
