Friday Notions #94

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: Is your life based on a plan?

Sentence: At night, awash in bright holiday lights, even the most dismal neighborhoods appeared magical.

Paragraph: Stuck in mind-numbing commute traffic, Rafferty let his imagination zoom him on a steep, curving mountain road, then breaking the land-speed record in the salt flats. Though the radio blared, he heard commuters either applauding or cursing as his Audi extended its height so he could drive above all the stalled vehicles ahead. Glancing over at the two-or-more-occupants lane, he saw only slightly increased movement. Why the hell can’t we all work from home?

Prompt: Name a language you would like to learn.

Word of the Day: pourboire syn  GRATUITY, cumshaw, lagniappe, largess (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 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.
