Thursday Thoughts #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: When you are stopped at a railroad crossing, what do you think about?

Sentence: Totally sated, she stretched with a Cheshire cat grin.

Paragraph: It totally bummed him out that he could no longer keep up with his chums. They got tired of waiting on him all the time and had eventually begun to leave him behind. He missed out on their pranks and jokes, except the ones of which he was the brunt. It wasn’t like he was fat or lazy; he had rheumatoid arthritis. Some days he had to crawl down the stairs, which Mack saw one morning. Todd had cursed his Mum for answering the door that day, for he knew Mack would blather on about it to everyone as soon as he left.

Prompt: Make a list of places to which no one can stop you from going.

Word of the Day: thersitical adj. scurrilous; foulmouthed; grossly abusive. (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.
