Saturday Ideas #97

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: How do you deal with big questions or decisions?

Sentence: No matter what, they had each other.

Paragraph: The live oak tree sprawled and shaded most of the backyard. It was as old as the state of Texas, but disease had turned it into a hazard. The falling of its heavy branches occurred more frequesntly, whether it was windy or calm, daylight or dark. Despite his fondness for the tree, Lonnie Arnold could no longer chance a destructive limb crashing through the roof or into a neighboring yard, let alone the whole tree toppling over. He absently rubbed his butt at the memory of the spanking he had received after sneaking out of the house one stormy night to perch in its midst and watch the lightning get closer.

Prompt: Recall the last prank you played.

Word of the Day: imparadise v.t. to enrapture. (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.

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.
