Sunday Ponderings #85

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: Do you have a valid reason for being ashamed of your parents?

Sentence: Although the sidewalks were cracked and warped by aging tree roots, youthful memories twined through his mind.

Paragraph: When Mark said, “That dog don’t fly!” Carla winced inwardly. How could she be interested in a guy who was always saying illogical things? Tall, dark, hot, and dangerous? So what! Just because his dancing made her smolder with desire and just because his kisses totally uninhibited her were no reasons to overlook his lack of intellect – were they? It’s not as if she planned on marrying him, for heaven’s sake!

Prompt: Reflect on your favorite state of mind.

Word of the Day: portress n : a woman who is a porter: as  a : a doorkeeper in a convent or apartment building  b : CHARWOMAN (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 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.
