Wednesday Wits #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: Where, or in what, do you seek solace?

Sentence: Dense fog obstructed his view and played with his imagination.

Paragraph: You cannot live stagnant and introspective. You have to do things, have experiences, meet people. Otherwise, where will your memories come from? It would be terrible to have no memories, like being in a coma or a trance or having amnesia. How does anyone live with empty recall? Is it like starting over everyday? How do you know who you are? I shudder at the thought and pity those unfortunate people. By being out and about all day, surrounded by other human beings, I make sure that will never happen to me. I’m never alone, especially at night. Someone is always beside me. Sometimes what I do to them is memorable; it’s always better when they cooperate. Other times, depending on my mood, I let them fall asleep and listen to their blissful breathing.

Prompt: Describe what it might be like to drive a school bus.

Word of the Day: remotion n.  1 the act of removing; removal  2 [Obs.] the act of departing; departure  (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
