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: How do you choose a friend?
Sentence: Until Sam Lucas walked into my life, I never knew what true misery was.
Paragraph: A low rumble alerted her to the forecasted approaching storm. She raced through the house, turning off all the lights as she made her way to the great room with its spanning wall of glass. Tingling with anticipation, she settled down on the suede sofa with socked feet on the leather ottoman. Within moments the sky became streaked with lightning flashes and thunder began booming with ferocious intensity.
Word of the Day: pettifoggery – n. quibbling over petty details. (I Always Look Up the Word “E-gre-gious” by Maxwell Nurnberg, Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1981)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
