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: Do you wish you had another life?
Sentence: Samson, Baxter P.D.’s number one K-9 canine, found 9-year-old Sophie Graham’s curled-up body beneath a mound of rotting pumpkins in Morrisey’s field.
Paragraph: Long ago, I had two best friends, Gracia and Brenda. Funny that both their names ended with the same letter, ’cause so did mine – Rubinana. We did everything together, when we didn’t have to be with our families, and called ourselves “The Three Muskateerettes.”
Word of the Day: adumbrate – v. 1. to outline in a shadowy way; sketch 2. to suggest beforehand; foreshadow in a vague way 3. to obscure; overshadow (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.
