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 time of day/night do you do your best work?
Sentence: From the depths of her soul she sighed deeply in the dark.
Paragraph: Jacob Simpson could finally relax. His bills were paid. He had a date. His car was washed. Reservations had been made at La Chateau. Yet, as he shaved and applied aftershave, something was niggling at his brain. He backtracked over the past few minutes, then the past few hours, until he was back at waking up. Nothing. He finished dressing and checked his Blackberry. Nope. His mind was a blank – until he answered the door and saw his parents beaming at him.
Prompt: Follow the raindrops as they fall. Where do they land and what effect do they have in a particular spot? Describe the drops, the intensity or mildness. What do you like to do in the rain?
