Friday Notions #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: How acutely do you listen to others?

Sentence: It finally dawned on Dopey that he was not the smartest dwarf in the mine.

Paragraph: The god Raumaun stared down at her with his six-fingered fists resting on his hips and laughed. His laughter shook the trees of Toumont Mountain and tumbled boulders down into the Weejee Valley below. Seesee, however was neither amused nor impressed. In fact, anger seethed within her petite form and she matched Raumaun’s stance in further defiance.

Prompt: Name the first adult you scorned.

Word of the Day: orotund adj. 1 clear, strong, and deep; resonant: said of the voice  2 bombastic or pompous: said of a style of speaking or writing (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

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.
