Tuesday Tips #112

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 freedom would endless wealth give you?

Sentence: Would that thy beautific smile be meant for me and me alone, Cyrano mused upon seeing the lovely Roxanne strolling through the royal garden, those satiny lips waiting for my kiss.

Paragraph: Life trickled out of her as she lay on a pile of rocks at the bottom of the gorge. With eyes open she saw nothing, not the stars or the patient scavengers. With nearly every bone in her body broken she felt nothing, which was a blessing. A final one.

Prompt: Create a limerick about someone you know but don’t particularly like.

Word of the Day: dandle vt. 1 to dance (a small child) up and down on the knee or in the arms  2 to pamper, indulge (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

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, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 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.

    Hi there! I stumbled across your blog after searching up “creative writing”. It’s so great that you’ve made a blog with the intention of helping other writers “unclog their thoughts” and get to writing! I’m helping to build a website called Noveljoy.com where writers can post their work as well as “courses”. These writing courses could be anything from actual, structured courses, to words of wisdom from someone who’s been in the field long enough to have some, to really anything the users want to post that they think will be helpful for writers in the community. It’d be great if you could check us out and maybe even create your own courses on our website! We don’t mind if you want to link those courses back to your blog, too!
