Sunday Ponderings #105

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: Around whom do you feel clumsy?

Sentence:  Man, how did such a great day turn to shit? wondered Ellie, lying on a gurney.

Paragraph: The tone of Hatcher’s voice told me to steer clear, so I 180ed outside his door as though I’d forgotten something. I had: my courage. I needed a raise. I deserved a raise. After three years of doing his lame assignments and gophering, I was such a cliche – a wuss – but so was he – a bully. Even though I knew that meant he had issues and should be pitied, I kept putting off asking for more money, because I had issues, too.

Word of the Day: catenate vt : to connect in a series : LINK (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. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
