Thursday Thoughts #104

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: What scent instantly arouses you?

Sentence: With time Leonard would learn, he would get it; until then he would suffer brutally.

Paragraph: Before leaving home, Seth stuffed the valentines into his backpack. Not wanting to hurt his mom’s feelings, he would throw them away later – unless everyone else handed out the stupid cards. As he climbed the cement steps, he bet Reese wouldn’t be bringing any dumb valentines. Jeez, he thought, walking into Draper Elementary, there’re hearts everywhere! What a stupid day! Then he remembered Mrs. Sigmore promised they would be having a party, which meant less teaching would be happening, and he stepped into his classroom almost smiling.

Prompt: Describe your best Valentine’s Day date.

Word of the Day: farraginous adj. heterogeneous; mixed. (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.
