Wednesday Wits #101

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 say “no” more often than you say “yes,” when asked to help someone or to participate in a worthy event?

Sentence: In his exasperated mind, Wilbur Shanks yanked the computer free of its cords and threw it through the closed window.

Paragraph: Every school day Mrs. Sanchez braked her bus at sixteen stops, even if no one was waiting. Because she had raised four children of her own, she knew there were days when morning routines got messed up. She would give the children one minute to show up before moving on, and next to her seat she always had a small basket of fruit and breakfast bars from which a hasty meal could be grabbed. Some days, by the time she pulled up at the school, the basket would be empty. Other days it would be nearly untouched. Those were the days she liked best, for they meant that all was well at homes of her riders.

Prompt: Describe your exercise routine.

Word of the Day: mammer vi obs : WAVER, HESITATE (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.

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.
