Sunday Ponderings #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: Do you wonder about yourself sometimes?

Sentence: As the wizened wizard watched the withered ruler struggling to rise from the throne, he allowed the corners of his mouth to lift briefly in satisfaction.

Paragraph: Much to her dismay, she woke up. The dream, the most lovely dream, began to disperse into the dawning light. She remained unmoving, slowed her breathing, and kept her eyes closed, attempting to fool her brain back to sleep. But subtle sounds breached her ears and all was lost.

Photo Prompt: forgotten child

Word of the Day: byword n 1 : a proverbial saying : PROVERB  2 a : one that personifies a type  b : one that is noteworthy or notorious  3 : EPITHET  4 : a frequently used word or phrase (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.


About Cyranette

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.
