Tuesday Tips #88

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: To whom do you owe the most gratitude?

Sentence: When his long fingers became entangled in her thick tresses, her shriek and his shrinkage spoiled their long anticipated tryst.

Paragraph: The dusty coating and musty smell of Harbinger’s Books overwhelmed Simon’s nose. Although he had taken an extra antihistamine in anticipation of perusing the old shop, it had worn off. As his sneezing became more frequent, he chided himself for not applying some Mentholatum to his nose and neck before leaving home. He was on the brink of discovery, when an asthma attack drove him outside for fresh air.

Prompt: List three people who have influenced your writing.

Word of the Day: interregnum n 1 : the time during which a throne is vacant between  two successive reigns or regimes  2 : a period during which the normal functions of government or control are suspended  3 : a lapse or pause in a continuous series (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. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
