Thursday Thoughts #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: What comforting phrase automatically comes to mind when you are sad or distressed?

Sentence: Every morning Mr. Duncan set his wife outside in her wheelchair for some fresh air.

Paragraph: As they left Duffy’s, thoroughly sated, a huge belch erupted from Mary’s mouth. Although it caused several stares, she laughed at the unexpected gas release. Barry, however, dropped her hand and moved a couple steps ahead. She tried to do it again, to further embarrass him, but nothing happened.

Prompt: Explain how to whistle.

Word of the Day: lineament n. 1 any of the features of the body, usually of the face, esp. with regard to its outline  2 a distinctive feature or characteristic  3 any extensive, linear surface feature on a planet, as a fault line, that indicates the nature of the underlying crust (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.

    That first question is really tough. I’m stumped. Next time I’m sad/upset and hear it I will think back to this blog post!
