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, and beginning paragraph to stimulate your “little gray cells.”
Question: When will you be satisfied?
Sentence: On a pretty day Sadie Holmes walked down a shaded lane on bloody feet.
Paragraph: Johnny Dupont was the meanest kid in school, but I wasn’t afraid of him. I paid big Stinky Simpson, the perfect bodyguard, to look after me. I didn’t believe in violence, especially against myself, so Stinky was worth every cent I paid him.
Word of the Day: aplomb – n. imperturbable self-possession, poise, or assurance. (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.
