Wednesday Wits #91

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: Are you a deep sleeper?

Sentence: The sky dared to be cloudless.

Paragraph: The old porch remained silent under my weight. The door did not creak when I opened it. Though empty, the house felt warm and cozy, causing me to sink to the floor and release all the trying-to-be-strong tears from the past few months. This house, my refuge, even after Nonna and Papaw were gone, always welcomed me.

Prompt: If you were blind and had an operation to reverse your blindness, name the first thing or person you would want to see.

Word of the Day: confabulate v.i. 1. to converse informally or privately.  2. Psychiatry. to fill a gap in memory with a falsification that the falsifier believes to be true. (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, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 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.
