Saturday Ideas #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: What are you sick of hearing about?

Sentence: “Pray, aid me not,” she strained to command with beads of sweat upon her pale brow.

Paragraph: Approaching the 49th Street bus stop, Leon noticed his three regulars sitting on the bench. However, they did not get up and form a line as he neared or stopped beside them. He opened the door and was about to call out to them, when he saw their necks gaped in gruesome grins and their bodies wired in position. Then he puked mightily, as he realized stakes had been driven through the tops of their heads to keep them from bending forward.

Prompt: Sit outside, close your eyes for five minutes, concentrate on what you hear, and then write.

Word of the Day: purblind adj 1 a obs : wholly blind  b : partly blind  2 : lacking in vision, insight, or understanding : OBTUSE (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.
