Sunday Ponderings #103

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: With which OZ character do you identify (lion, tinman, scarecrow, witch, etc.)?

Sentence: She had been so careful, so thorough, how had he found her?

Paragraph: Both the weather and their whimsical nature brought the Pango brothers down. They should have just chopped up the body and left it in the woods, where it would have been eaten by any number of wild animals, but noooo. Instead, in the middle of a meadow Juno and Rodney built an elaborate snowman around the stiff form. While the brothers felt amused and proud of themselves, hunters and hikers liked the snowy idea and within weeks a village of snow people and animals filled the area. Word got around, pictures were taken and displayed online. When the spring thaw arrived early, roads cleared and photographers flocked to the site to snap the various stages of the mountain meadow’s melting creations. Need I say more?

Prompt: Write an ode to electricity.

Word of the Day: typal adj 1 : serving as a type : TYPICAL  2 : of or relating to a type (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.
