Friday Notions #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: Who/what has knocked off your socks or blown you away lately?

Sentence: Breathing hard, drenched in mud, sweat, and not a little blood, the gator man looked at his latest prize – a bloomin’ giant!

Paragraph: They came, they saw, and they easily conquered us. They landed in the dark of night, under camouflage from satellites, in vast deserts and in countries no one cared about, places without the basics: electricity, plumbing, and communication. They burrowed deep into the sand and the earth to set up their command posts. Then they tunneled like ants to major cities and sucked them beneath the surface before any alarms could be raised.

Prompt: Describe how you feel when you skip a meal.

Word of the Day: kine archaic pl of COW (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.

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.
