Tuesday Tips #95

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/what do you approach with great trepidation?

Sentence: Not fully awake, she closed the pocket door to the bathroom on her fingers.

Paragraph: I sped through the only four-way blinking red light in town. It did not matter: it was after midnight and I was the sheriff, the only law in fifty miles for two hundred people. Only strangers moving through gave me any trouble, though. That is where I was headed, to the Acorn Inn, the only motel in this good-for-nothing county. Town should have been called Only, but it wasn’t.

Prompt: Name a gift that you wish someone would intuit to give to you.

Word of the Day: infelicitous adj : not felicitous: as  a : not appropriate or well-timed <an ~ remark>  b : AWKWARD, UNFORTUNATE <an ~ moment> (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

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.
