Sunday Ponderings #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: How has your September been?

Sentence: Rhianna, perched high up in the branches of a Linden tree, remained hidden from the posse.

Paragraph: Although the coins were dull with wear, they did not blend into the tractor  rutted, red earth road. Young Barnaby Willows easily distinguished them from the pebbles and dirt as he scuffled along. Taking his hands from his pockets, he picked up the coins – four pennies, one nickel, two dimes – and deposited them into his left pocket; his right pocket contained three Lego figures. As he continued past the tall stalks of corn on either side, he found a few more coins to deposit. Then a few more, which had him racing ahead and focusing on nothing else.

Prompt: Name something you diligently keep track of.

Word of the Day: erenow – adv archaic : HERETOFORE  (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)  [BTW: In my 1991 dictionary, this word is not archaic.]

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, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 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.
