Saturday Ideas #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: Who dictates your fashion?

Sentence: At midnight on Monday, Miranda Myers murdered monstrous Martin.

Paragraph: As dawn approached, Chet Johnson rose and attired himself for the day. After having coffee and toast, he locked the house and drove away, to ease his neighbors’ concerns. But instead of driving to work in Naperville, he drove into Chicago and sat on a bench by Lake Michigan. His heart and mind broken for all time, he stared at nothing and sunk into himself, instead of into the cold, dark water.

Prompt: Name something you could live without if you had to.

Word of the Day: pindling adj. Older Use. puny; sickly; frail; weak. (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.
