Sunday Ponderings #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: Are you living where you don’t mind dying?

Sentence: She could not help that he turned her on.

Paragraph: The stink of dead fish woke him. He slowly became aware of being supine on a hard, wet surface, feeling as though he had been trampled on. A sideways dark gray world greeted his eyes, which only slightly opened. It took moments to bring a hand to his face and then he wished he hadn’t.

Prompt: List five things you really, really hate to do.

Word of the Day: operant adj. 1. operating; producing effects. – n. 2. a person or thing that operates. (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.

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.

    Thanks so much for sharing. For me: ironing, waiting in grocery lines, speaking in public, dressing up, and washing utensils/silverware.
