Thursday Thoughts #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: What do you do while waiting for your toast to pop up?

Sentence: After three grueling days, every molecule in her body was exhausted.

Paragraph: Lemonhead never knew what hit him. One minute he was sitting on the park bench, feeding the pigeons, and the next minute his brains were splattered in several directions and onto several legs and shoes. None of the witnesses – and there were quite a few on such a fine day – near him had heard a shot. A couple dogs had had to be impounded due to their quick licking off of tasty morsels from their owners.

Prompt: Describe the time(s) you have wanted to howl with satisfaction or pride.

Word of the Day: lagniappe or lagnappe – n. 1. a small gift given by a merchant to a customer for making a purchase; bonus.  2. a gratuity; tip. (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.

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. 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.
