Wednesday Wits #109

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: When have you been instantly ashamed?

Sentence: Pondering the rubble of his life, Tory Bunker realized his sleuthing days were over.

Paragraph: “Dust doesn’t rot,” a dazzling speaker at an enormous focus group had announced many years earlier. Perhaps not, Sheryl thought, but it sure builds up. As she thoroughly swiped every flat surface, ridge, and cranny, she remembered that weekend of positivity. It had been enlightening, to say the least, filling her with hope and confidence and self-esteem. So much so that she had had the resolve to end her miserable marriage and chart a better future.

Prompt: Identify a person you would be surprised to see on your doorstep.

Word of the Day: ugsome adj archaic : FRIGHTFUL, LOATHSOME (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.

    Oh, how I wish there was an easy way to keep surfaces clear of dust. Would help my allergies no end!

      It’s weird but, humid places have less dust. It’s like the humidity holds the particles in the air longer. 🙂 As for allergies – dust is the least of mine.
