Friday Notions #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: What school study or course do you feel is totally irrelevant to life?

Sentence: The game was afoot; no one used a cart or a caddy.

Paragraph: Anticipation had me flushed. Not everyday one met a famous author, a person held in awe. I had no idea why Matthew Rayburn deigned to give me an interview. I was no one, just a small town (Piney Flats, TN) book reviewer for a bi-weekly paper (The Tobacco Ledger) with only 3,019 subscribers. But here I stood on his impressive doorstep, knees trembling, about to push the doorbell.

Prompt: Describe being stunned or awed by someone.

Word of the Day: froward adj   1 : habitually disposed to disobedience and opposition   archaic:  ADVERSE (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.

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.

    Cyranette, I’m always really surprised by your ability to come up with such diverse and creative prompts – where do you find your inspiration? 🙂

    They are just in my head, sweetie; seem to be at my beck and call. Even before I open my eyes, my brain goes into gear and is thinking of sentences and questions. I keep a few that I want to expand on for my own endeavors. The rest I gladly offer to everyone else. Memories, experiences, nature, looking out the window, traffic, life – (shrug).
