Sunday Ponderings #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: When all else fails, what do you come back to/resort to?

Sentence: Crossing the Atlantic was not Phillip Markham’s idea of a good time.

Paragraph: As her name was called, Megan Stanley steeled herself for the cross examination to come. Holding herself stiffly and biting the inside of her cheek for concentration, she made her way to the witness stand and carefully sat down. Her trembling legs, which only the judge could see, belied the calmness with which she spoke of the events leading up to her lover’s death.

Prompt: Identify something you plan to do as soon as spring arrrives.

Word of the Day: holus-bolus adv. all at once; in one lump (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996) 

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.
