Wednesday Wits #100

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: If you don’t use an e-reader, do you dog-ear, use a bookmark, or just remember what page you are on?

Sentence: For the third time Constance missed her mammogram appointment.

Paragraph: Once again Hammerman was screaming mad at his wife but fuming quietly, taking it out on the hedges, wanting more than anything to strangle her. But he would not, could not do such a thing, not even for a few seconds – it would give him too much pleasure to squelch the bitch.

Prompt: Declare your latest important decision.

Word of the Day: tantivy adv. 1. at full gallop: to ride tantivy. adj. 2. swift; rapid. – n. 3. a gallop; rush. (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.
