Saturday Ideas #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: Did your parents let you drive before you had a license?

Sentence: Amid the excited roar of the crowd at Springsteen Station Arena, no one noticed the slumping man until it was too late.

Paragraph: When the police arrived at 472 Castle Keep Lane, the door stood open to the night. Toys and books were scattered on the floor; the Sprout channel played loudly on a large screen television, which provided the only illumination. “Mrs. Wilson?” one of the men called out to a rocking, disheveled woman, as the other began looking for the remote. “Mrs. Wilson?”

Prompt: List three people whose names do not match their faces and rename them. 🙂

Word of the Day: assiduity n. 1. contant application or effort; diligence; industry. 2. Often, assiduities. devoted or solicitous attention. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)

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.
