Tuesday Tips #86

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 did you dislike about high school?

Sentence: Carson Miles studied his reflection in the mirror and renamed himself Miles Carson.

Paragraph: Because they were so premature, the twins were called Itsy and Bitsy. The McElroy’s family and friends presumed those were temporary names, but, as the girls survived and thrived, neither changed. Upon their release, after three months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Bart’s, not a dry eye could be found among their caregivers. Itsy and Bitsy still weighed less than ten pounds together and, at home, would share a crib, above which was proudly displayed their birth certificates.

Prompt: List your top ten favorite movies.

Word of the Day: booboisie n. a segment of the general public composed of uneducated, uncultured persons. (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.

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.
