Wednesday Wits #79

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 clones do you need?

Sentence: With a deep sigh of resignation she donned her golfing attire.

Paragraph: A steaming cup of cocoa waited on the table. The sound system played pleasant instrumentals. Clocks ticked. Both front and back porch lights had been clicked on at dusk. Otherwise, without children or pets, the Crawfirth house was still. The soothing drink would remain untouched and congeal, the radio and lights would continue to use electricity, for Hilary had fallen down the stairs and broken her neck. No one had heard the thump-thump-thump and snap; no one would check on her in the morning. Bryan would not be home from his business trip and boffing with new friends for two more days.

Prompt: List five fascinating words and explain why you like them.

Word of the Day: temerarious adj. blindly; heedlessly. (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.
