Saturday Ideas #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: Do you prefer snow skiing or water skiing?

Sentence: It was quite a shock to wake up and find myself bound and gagged.

Paragraph: What moron thought up these clues? Evans wondered, thoroughly irked.  The whole point of a hunt was being ruined by illogical minds. I should have insisted on putting this together! he fumed. Though always up for a challenge, he could not think simply enough to follow the idiotic trail imposed and find the next inane object. He stopped to get his bearings, considering which would be the quickest route out of this fiasco, when a scream pierced the air off to his right.

Prompt: Name your favorite playground structure.

Word of the Day: consuetude n : social usage : CUSTOM (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.

    More great prompts! My favourite is the swings! But I also love finding a good old fashioned see-saw with a willing participant to play with! What’s your favourite? 🙂

    You must be petite. The playgrounds in my town are for children, but I love porch swings. A couple years ago, we had an old wooden swing attached to the limb of one of our tall pecan trees. It was great. We’d twist the rope up tight, then pull the swing back. The kids loved spinning and flying all at once.
