Thursday Thoughts #78

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 content with the name you were given at birth?

Sentence: Phineas flicked his fins and fled into the sea grass.

Paragraph: Despite its cheerful curb appeal, the bungalow did not beckon to me. In fact, my sense of peace tingled with alarm, as I viewed it from the car. The newly renovated exterior seemed to be shrouded in gray, even though the sun was shining down on the roof and glistening on the trees. I opened the passenger door and swung my legs around to get out, but they felt like unyielding marble columns.

Prompt: Make a list of people you know who are less blessed.

Word of the Day: metanoia n : a transformative change of heart; esp : a spiritual conversion (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.
