Thursday Thoughts #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: What makes you restless or antsy?

Sentence: Unlike his siblings and classmates, Tyree consistently kept misdoing things.

Paragraph: Each night, with barefoot steps, Yasmin explored the centuries old castle she had purchased. It mattered not that being alone she could have peeked into every nook and cranny during the day; she relished the cool darkness. As her nipples poked against the sheer fabric of the gown she had found at the back of an enormous bureau, she envisioned herself a pale wraith roaming the emptiness. But it was not truly empty, was it?  

Prompt: Describe your earliest memory.

Word of the Day: abstruse adj. 1. hard to understand; recondite; esoteric: abstruse theories.  2. Obs. secret; hidden. (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 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.
