Saturday Ideas #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: How far from home have you traveled?

Sentence: The reluctant witness nervously recounted her observations.

Paragraph: The Willoughbys, across the street, had the whiniest cat. Every morning, it sat facing the closed front door and pathetically yowled for attention, pleading to be let in, waking up everyone in the neighborhood, except its owners. Needless to say, it was Siamese. Obviously, our neighbors were unaware they had chosen a pampered breed, not a roaming, stalking hunter of birds and mice, like our Sidney.

Prompt: Identify the roughest day of your life so far.

Word of the Day: arenaceous adj  1 : resembling, made of, or containing sand or sandy particles  2 : growing  in sandy places

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.
