Saturday Ideas #108

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: How attention grabbing is most of your clothing?

Sentence: Ever calm, cool, and collected, Eli Walkens firmly believed in scissle relationships.

Paragraph: When Agatha Cromroy sneezed, the world around her knew it. She made windows shake and birds scatter. As a shy child and teen, she had held in her sneezes and only let out a small “Sppff.” However, that changed when she learned how powerful a sneeze could be and did not want to damage her insides any further. Her first expulsion had been deafening, which was quite a surprise. Being a considerate person, Agatha took precautions to minimize the occurrences: a daily antihistimine, keeping the house clean, not sniffing flowers, and staying away from cats. Unfortunately, as she grew older, her limbs became involved and she began breaking objects with her flailings.

Prompt: Relate the first time you recognized the beauty of nature.

Word of the Day: breviloquent adj syn 1  CONCISE, brief, compendious, curt, laconic, short, short and sweet, succinct, summary, terse  BLUFF, abrupt, blunt, brief, brusque, crusty, curt, gruff, rough, short  (Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, 1976)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
