Sunday Ponderings #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: Do you keep or discard book covers/jackets?

Sentence: Rebecca Lockley enjoyed only the briefest parts of each day: dawn and dusk.

Paragraph: Richie Finks grew up smelling his fingers, seemingly entranced by whatever they had picked up. By the time he reached middle school, it had become a habit and he would sniff at the tips and smile. It was too weird and I refused to acknowledge that we were cousins. Not that Richie cared; he went about in his own little bubble, talking to himself, laughing at his own jokes – not that anyone else was listening – and not relating to any other human being. One would have thought that he would barely make it through life, due to his limited focus, but he surprised us all by becoming a forensic anthropologist.

Prompt: Besides money and cell phone, list three things you never leave home without.

Word of the Day: deontology n. ethics dealing esp. with duty, moral obligation, and right action. (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.
