Friday Notions #99

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: What makes your mother tick?

Sentence: Any sound of hammering immediately transported Jack back in time to when his uncle nailed him in the closet.

Paragraph: I dumped Leon because he wouldn’t communicate and because he refused to live up to his pathetic potential. He wouldn’t even try, which really rankled me. He’d rather be a worthless, bleary eyed alcoholic and coke addict than be with me. Then, when his family wouln’t help me with an intervention – God forbid that one of their own had a problem! – that was it. Screw ’em! I shut down my heart and got out of miserabledom.

Prompt: Name your favorite way to travel.

Word of the Day: forfend vt   1 a archaic : FORBID  b : to ward off : PREVENT  2 : PROTECT : PRESERVE (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

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.
