Wednesday Wits #87

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: If you believe in past lives, who do you feel you might have been?

Sentence: Tuning his trumphet brought thumps from the other side of the wall, but they ceased when Covington blew the blues away.

Paragraph: The candescent moon hovered outside her third-story bedroom window, filling the modest space with light and casting a glow upon her sleeping form and face. The orb was not alone in its adoration of her, for the leafless branches reached out and touched the glass barrier between them, while the shadows in the room sighed at being kept from her.

Prompt: If you do not believe in reincarnation, name an era in which you would have liked to live.

Word of the Day: enucleate vt  1 archaic : EXPLAIN  2 : to deprive of a nucleus  3 : to remove without cutting into (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.

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.
