Thursday Thoughts #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: Of what are you most proud?

Sentence: Inspector Atwell’s reliance on his gut instinct caused him as much trouble as did his pigeon-toedness.

Paragraph: Nobody needed to get away from it all as much as Lindsey Wallace. She had been full-steaming nonstop towards her career goal for more than eight years. No time for friends, lovers, pets, or family; only bosses, co-workers, assistants, and underlings filled her life. The first and last to leave everyday, she had an electronic key to the prestigious Zorn & Zorn building. One winter morning, the decision, or nondecision, to take a break was taken away from her, when she was discovered unconscious in the elevator.

Prompt: Name someone you secretly admire.

Word of the Day: effulgence n : radiant splendor : BRILLIANCE (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.
