Saturday Ideas #98

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: Do you have enough friends?

Sentence: The betrayal that would occur in the next thirteen hours never entered Kajinski’s mind.

Paragraph: The day began like any other for Marissa Hardiway: rising, showering, dressing, eating a quick bite of toast, feeding the fish, and locking the front door. Then she slipped on the icy steps, squealed, fell on her tailbone, and bonked the back of her skull. For a few stunned moments, she lay still, until she started to shake with chill. As she tried to get up, Marissa glanced around to see if anyone had noticed her fall and was coming to help.

Prompt: Recall the last time you hurt yourself.

Word of the Day: ubiety n. the state of existing and having a definite location in space. (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.


About Cyranette

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, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 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.
