Wednesday Wits #83

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: With whom do you feel the most at ease?

Sentence: With the utmost determination and fortitude, Superintendent Carolyn Booker-Smith transformed the Seffland County Unified School District into a model for the state, but not everyone approved of her methods.

Paragraph: For many years, Nick Ringo managed to evade entrapment. Then along came Sal. Cross-eyed Salvador “The Jinx” Tootlinburg crossed the bridge from Yonkers by accident and never looked back, literally. Nick figured the guy couldn’t find the right exit, but he was big as a house, strong as a truck, and loyal as family.

Prompt: If money was no object, name something you would fix.

Word of the Day: repine vi. to feel or express unhappiness or discontent; complain; fret (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.

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.
