Tuesday Tips #5

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 makes you wild and crazy?

Sentence: Half a block from home, Bobby heard Riley barking for him.

Paragraph: Wanda Jean Revere Thompson pushed her old Datsun to its limits and wasn’t really surprised when it gave out on her. Nevertheless, she whacked on the steering wheel and cursed it up one side and down another. She wasn’t the least bit apologetic to the Lord for having taken his name in vain, feeling totally fed up with suffering from his orneriness. She tried to be nice to others and stick to that waitressing job, but it wasn’t her fault that dirtbag owner kept trying to hit on her. Same-oh, same-oh!  

Word of the Day: phalanstery – n. 1. a socialist community as planned by F.M.C. Fourier 2. any communal association 3. the buildings housing such a community (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.
