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 is your number one rule-of-thumb?
Sentence: Take it from an expert: Lying is a fool’s game.
Paragraph: When we moved to Great Aunt Lenore’s house, I was too young to understand why. It was a dark old place set back from a cold, dark lake. I instantly hated it. My two sisters and I were warned never to go near the water without an adult. No worries about that – the water smelled awful even from the veranda.
Word of the Day: mittimus – n. a writ committing a person to prison (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991.)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
