Saturday Ideas #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: Are you where you want to be?

Sentence: Shame spread through Father Felix like a wildfire.

Paragraph: Jackson Leib set up the new Orion XT6 telescope next to his Starblast on the roof of the converted schoolhouse. Because of his love of astronomy, he had chosen to live on the outskirts of town, where star gazing was better. Not only was the 1940s brick building isolated on Grayson Hill Rd., it overlooked Tillson Valley far below. As he aimed the scope at the sparkling sky, he silently thanked his great-grandfather for turning him into a stargazer the summer that his parents took a cruise.

Prompt: Relate your secret ambition.

Word of the Day: quiescent adj. being at rest; quiet; still; inactive or motionless: a quiescent mind. (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.
