Friday Notions #77

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 many lovers have you had or have you stopped counting?

Sentence: Jonah watched the whale’s approach with both resignation and utter terror.

Paragraph: To Cincy, the bus smelled of adventure, taking her away from all the stinky mess at home. The whoosh of the door, the engine thrumming in back, the gentle rolling, and the passing of streets, homes, and businesses all conspired to make her discontented. Deep in thought about all the places she would go when she grew up, she almost missed her stop for the orthodontist.

Prompt: Name a country on your gotta-go-there list.

Word of the Day: fugacious adj. 1. fleeting; transitory. 2. Bot. falling or fading early. (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.


About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. 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.

    Love today’s question! And, guess what? On our sail back up to the Outer Hebrides last night, the captain pointed out a Minke Whale to us – very exciting! (Gosh, that makes it sound like a small, cosy affair on a small sailboat or a fancy yacht… It was a big ferry with a tannoy system.)
