Thursday Thoughts #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: How far could you swim if you had to?

Sentence: You never can tell a book by its cover.

Paragraph: Brad stood up and announced that he had been sober for nine months. Everyone in the small group clapped and he sat down, not feeling like saying anything else. Only his sponsor knew of the latest trauma threatening to weaken his resolve.

Prompt: Name a famous person you have met.

Word of the Day: atonic adj. 1 caused or characterized by atony (lack of bodily tone or muscle tone)  2 unaccented: said of a word or syllable – n. an unaccented syllable or word (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

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

    Swimming is my favourite exercise but I’m not sure how I’d fair in open water – you know, psychologically I’d be freaked out! 😮

    I know, but sometimes we have to do what’s necessary. I have no desire to drown. 😦 When I was little, I’d swim in any water, now it has to be fairly clear and very clean. I love snorkeling in not too deep water, but I don’t imagine there’s much snorkeling going on where you live.
