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, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day to stimulate your “little gray cells.”
Question: What smells get your senses going?
Sentence: Stewart’s eyes kept straying to the clock.
Paragraph: In the dark a baby cried, a mosquito buzzed, and a board creaked. Her eyes were dry from being open for so long. She was waiting to feel sleepy, but her first night alone in this rundown halfway house wasn’t going well. What was a baby doing here? she wondered.
Prompt: Imagine yourself as a postal delivery person. What would your route be like?
Word of the Day: volant – adj. 1. engaged in or having the power of flight 2. moving lightly; nimble 3. (of a heraldic bird) having the wings extended for flight (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.
