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 constitutes a truly “good” book for you?
Sentence: Penny Alberts drove around town paying her bills, cursing and wanting to spit on everyone who had more money than she did.
Paragraph: The whirring of the tires on the long, straight, empty road was lulling her to sleep. She was out of radio range and had forgotten her CDs. She rolled down the windows on the passenger side and turned off the airconditioner, but still her eyelids drooped. There was no more coffee in the thermos, but she thought her purse might have some gum. That would help. Keeping her tired eyes on the road, she reached into the bag on the passenger seat and felt around with her sensitive fingers.
Prompt: Imagine life as a squirrel.
