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: In what don’t you believe?
Sentence: It’s hard to get out of bed when your life sucks.
Paragraph: Leah Waters did not want to be in charge of Gordon Rooney’s homecoming from Iraq, so she told Sylvia Baxter, the town busybody. That got the ball rolling pretty quickly. Leah was Gordon’s neighbor, who had been looking after his dogs these past 14 months, and he had wired her of his return. She had done her part, so she felt it was time somebody else, or somebodies, put the party and parade together. Besides, socializing wasn’t exactly her forte. Everybody in Whitfield knew that.
