Friday Notions #75

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: What do you think about when you see a kite flying?

Sentence: With soulless eyes he stared at his last helpless, stupid, pathetic victim.

Paragraph: Splendid kites of all shapes and sizes flew steadily in the ocean breeze as we neared Monterey. Ever since the freeway began paralleling the beaches and dunes on the right, my spirit lifted, our wretched journey nearly over. I needed to be home; just a few more miles and we would be there.

Prompt: Go to a park, beach, or mountain top and blindfold yourself for an hour or so. Experience the sounds around you, as well as the curiosity of people who stop to talk with you. Write it all down when you get back home – if you can wait that long. 🙂

Word of the Day: lickspittle n : a fawning subordinate; TOADY  (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.

About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. 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.
