Sunday Ponderings #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: What are you well-known for among your friends/family?

Sentence: Everyday Horratz cleared his mind by writing everything down, from the time he awoke to the time he fell asleep, no matter where he was.

Paragraph: Until those grisly murders took place, I firmly believed that looking forward to something – a movie, a holiday, etc. – led to a better life. After discovering the root of their depression, I gently guided my patients to change their routine and plan one event, like a visit to the zoo or library, that might bring a smile to their mind. Anything that would raise their spirits a little and get them out of their rut of hopelessness. Then last week, one of the most difficult to reach came bursting into my office quivering with joy and accomplishment.

Prompt: Declare your all time favorite personality.

Word of the Day: megrim n syn CAPRICE, bee, boutade, conceit, crotchet, fancy, freak, humor, whim, whimsy (Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, 1976)

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.
