Sunday Ponderings #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: Are you planning on moving this year?

Sentence: If the computer went down one more time, Tamra vowed to throw it out the window.

Paragraph: After being frightened away by the unexpected noise and shaking ground, the night creatures slowly returned to where they had been. Acrid and unusual scents drew them closer to the cause of the disturbance – a large metal, manmade structure rested at the bottom of the ravine. They sniffed and explored uneasily, ready to scatter again. Fallen trees lay flattened behind the unnatural destructor and several had crashed upon it. The nesting inhabitants were skittish and stunned, if not dead. If not yet, the night creatures would make easy meals of them.

Prompt: Tell the world about the one you love.

Word of the Day: polyglot adj  1 speaking or writing several languages  2 containing or written in several languages (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.

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.
