Friday Notions #106

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 would you name a thirteenth month?

Sentence: “You’re worse than bonnyclabber,” criticized Thurgood.

Paragraph: Being locked in the dark basement sucks, but Bonnie, the sitter, does it to me whenever her boyfriend comes over. The basement door is the only one that locks from the outside and they don’t like me to bug them. While Mom and Dad have this idea to fix up the basement as a playroom for me, they haven’t gotten around to it yet. Neither have they replaced the bulb that burned out last month, so Bonnie has put me in the dark three times now. She gets away with it, too, because she straightens up the house and makes sure I’m in bed asleep by the time my parents come home. She’s a real fooler.

Prompt: Relate the last time you narrowly escaped an emotional disaster.

Word of the Day: susurrant adj. whispering; murmuring; rustling (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.
