Friday Notions #84

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 was your favorite childhood treat?

Sentence: The doorbell rang in the middle of her consoling bath.

Paragraph: He woke at 5:00 a.m., closed the bedroom door on his sleeping wife, and sat down at his computer. After opening his manuscript, he put his fingers on the keyboard, but nothing happened. His mind was blank. Nothing stirred. He read a couple paragraphs to kickstart his thoughts, but his fingers remained in place. What the heck? What’s going on? he wondered, totally puzzled by his empty brain.

Prompt: Recall the last time, other than at a funeral, you cried in public.

Word of the Day: vilipend vt. 1 to treat or regard contemptuously or slightingly; belittle  2 to vilify; revile (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. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
