Sunday Ponderings #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: Have you ever had a secret admirer?

Sentence: It’s a pisser having to be the responsible one.

Paragraph: Jean Paul Leone peeked at the growing audience from behind the blue velvet curtain of Rudolph’s Romantic Theatre. He loved looking at all the fancy and chic clothing and sparkling gems, as well as the make-up and hairstyles, everyone was wearing before the lights were dimmed. His heart flittered with excitement. Suddenly, someone slapped his butt and quipped, “Get your skinny ass in gear, JP!”

Prompt: Name your favorite constellation.

Word of the Day: jural adj. 1. pertaining to law; legal.  2. of or pertaining to rights and obligations. (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.

    Thank you for the writing prompt . I used this in one of my posts for a piece of flash fiction. I did not want to post it here as a comment and take away form yours. However, I wanted you to get credit for starting the story. I used todays sentence.. It’s a pisser having to be the responsible one. If you would like to see what your prompt created its here http://elfslore.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/another-offering-to-the-muse-of-creative-writing/
