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: What could you live without?
Sentence: Dismal rain dampened his appetite more than the flayed body at his feet.
Paragraph: The old treehouse remained, though not in good condition. Over the years the oak tree’s growth had shifted the planked walls, opened the roof on one side, and rented the warped plywood floor. There was no sign of the ladder, but the memories of what went on there would never rot away.
Word of the Day: grass widow – n. 1. a woman divorced or otherwise separated from her husband 2. a woman whose husband is often away for short periods of time (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.
