Thursday Thoughts #80

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: When you’re pleased is it obvious?

Sentence: As she watched her youngest granddaughters squeal and splash in the plastic pool, she knew they would be safe, much safer than she had been all those years ago.

Paragraph: For the first day of school, Bo wore his usual shorts and t-shirt, while Bud looked like a mini GQ model. Though they had been only minutes apart at birth, they were years apart in character and demeanor. Their parents tiptoed around Bo, but Bud behaved like an angel. And, despite having identical faces, one Bernstein boy was never mistaken for the other.

Prompt: Describe your first adult activity.

Word of the Day: aporetic adj syn INCREDULOUS, disbelieving, questioning, quizzical, show-me, skeptical, unbelieving (Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, 1976)

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.
