Wednesday Wits #89

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: Does All-Hallow’s-Eve do much for you?

Sentence:  Ghosts will come out of hiding, if you know how to entice them.

Paragraph: In stunned silence she watched what her son was about to do. The baby lay sleeping atop the quilted bed. At some point the lamp had been debulbed and deshaded by the boy, and into its socket he had inserted a tiny foot. His face was blank, except for his sparkling eyes. When he clicked the switch on, she woke up screaming, “NOOOOOO!”

Prompt: Recall the Halloween costume that most surprised your friends.

Word of the Day: phallicism also phallism – worship of the phallus, esp. as symbolic of power or of the generative principle of nature. (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.
