Friday Notions #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: From which family member(s) have you inherited your best attributes?

Sentence: The high meadow was abloom in a mixed palette of blue, yellow, and purple, waiting to be captured by brush or camera.

Paragraph: Sensing danger, the alpha wolf left the den. He gazed up at the moonless sky but saw only twinkling dots. His nose smelled smoke. Smoke that was too near; smoke that did not belong there. He quietly took off to investigate, noticing along the way that none of the other night creatures were panicking or fleeing. It would not be a forest fire he discovered.

Prompt: Explain why life does not have to be complicated.

Word of the Day: nonfeasance n – failure to act; esp : failure to do what ought to be done (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.

    Hi Cyranette,

    Just a small correction to word of the day, it is supposed to be spelt as (nonfeasance) instead of nonfessance. I guess you typed an ‘s’ instead of an ‘a’
