Thursday Thoughts #82

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: Do you keep a list of the books you’ve read?

Sentence: All of six years, pretty Priscilla vamped in front of the mirror, as Uncle Steve watched from the bed.

Paragraph: Having moved sixteen times in twelve years, Baxter McCall had a difficult time learning and making friends. His sense of inferiority deepened with each new school and neighborhood, while he watched his older brother, Bobby, breeze through classes and attract friends. A stutter developed in fourth grade and remained midway through college, when it was broken by his first love – Julie Hawkins.

Prompt: Remember your first dirty joke.

Word of the Day: defalcation 1 archaic : DEDUCTION  2 : the act or an instance of embezzling  3 : a failure to meet a promise or an expectation (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.
