Wednesday Wits #111

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 low have you had to stoop to get what you wanted or needed?

Sentence: With each monstrous wave the men aboard the Peggy Sue cowered and prayed, their fate no longer in their hands.

Paragraph: Stephan stoked the surreal atmosphere with stories handed down through his family’s generations. His tale-telling skill could mesmerize the gruffest of men and make believers of those who could not otherwise be swayed from reality. As long as horrendous beasts and bloody battles appeared above the fire’s flames each night, he would remain alive.

Prompt: Describe an angel.

Word of the Day: gibbous adj 1 a : marked by convexity or swelling  b : of the moon or a planet : seen with more than half but not all of the apparent disk illuminated  2 : having a hump : HUMPBACKED (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.
