Wednesday Wits #76

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: Why do you like/dislike a certain movie genre?

Sentence: “If you don’t want a child, just admit it,” he fumed, “and I’ll get on with my life.”

Paragraph: Looking out the breakfast nook window, she saw the birds going at it again, squabbling over the birdseed. The food was there all day long, but they chose the heat of the day to flutter and fight. Then she noticed some white-tipped, gray feathers on the ground. That damn cat!

Prompt: Recall the first time you wrongly accused someone.

Word of the Day: salutary adj  1 : producing a beneficial effect : REMEDIAL  2 : promoting health : CURATIVE  (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.

    Interesting question about the genre – I find myself being sort of prejudiced against some genres and probably unfairly so! I should give some things another shot. 🙂

    Wellll, my husband and I will not go to slasher movies or movies with actors we dislike for their stupid plots and potty humor. If you have already determined that certain movies offend or bore you, why should you make yourself go see them? Give yourself some credit for having good sense. 🙂 We go to lots of IFC movies with cool storylines and great acting. France’s “The Intouchables” was superb.
