Sunday Ponderings #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: How often do you question what others purport as truth?

Sentence: Quite out of touch with the times, ruggedly handsome and overly confident Tex Tucker strode into Sal’s Saloon, where nary a head turned in his direction.

Paragraph: As soon as her dad was snoring, Celene snuck out of the house to meet Jimmy across the street on the McKenrick’s back porch. Their smiles glowed at each other before a quick embrace and kiss. With clasped hands they took off down the alley to their secret spot, unaware of being followed.

Prompt: Describe the sound of rain dripping into a bucket.

Word of the Day: fluxion n. 1. an act of flowing; flow or flux. 2. continuous change. 3. Math. the derivative relative to the time. (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.
