Friday Notions #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: Is your life manageable without making lists?

Sentence: Without a word, he slipped out of her and left her in the dark.

Paragraph: The monitors. I hated the sounds of those monitors, the beeping and clicking and thrumming that incessantly reminded me that my child was sick. No, she was far past sick. She was dying and no one could help her. She was in a coma now. Though I still spoke and read to her,  she no longer responded. Her voice had been silenced; only the sounds of those hateful machines kept me company.

Prompt: Make a flower come to life.

Word of the Day: titivate or tittivate v. 1. to make smart; spruce up. 2. to make oneself  smart or spruce. (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 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.
