Thursday Thoughts #115

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 much restraint do you possess?

Sentence: He kicked himself, which was no mean feat, time and time again.

Paragraph: In stunned silence she stood by the edge of the pond. The girls, knowing not to go near it, had yelled, “Mommy, Mommy, the ball rolled into the water again!” It happened often for they loved playing ball. Since she loved hearing their laughter and was proud of their heeding her warnings, she did not mind fetching their toy from the bottom of the long, sloping backyard. But this time, incongruously, a body floated among the flowering lily pads.

Prompt: Remark upon your three worst experiences.

Word of the Day: chesty adj. 1. having a well-developed chest or bosom.  2. proud; conceited. (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.
