Thursday Thoughts #90

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 is the most outrageous question you have asked someone?

Sentence: During the interrogation, Nella noticed the boredom in the detective’s dark gray eyes.

Paragraph: From the deep ditch the recon soldier watched the long, slow caravan of tanks go by. The heavy rumble of their passing vibrated down through the road layers and into the ground, shaking stones and dirt loose all around him, his mouth open to keep his teeth from rattling together. There’re hundreds of them, he concluded, after twenty minutes, but he dared not scuttle backwards to alert his commander until the ground stilled and silence returned.

Prompt: Write an essay about the moral health of your country.

Word of the Day: astatic adj. 1. unstable; unsteady.  2. having no tendency to take a definite position or direction; in a state of neutral equilibrium: an astatic galvanometer. (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.

My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border.
