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: When did you stop believing in Santa Claus and the Easter bunny or any other childhood myth/legend?
Sentence: After the three girls played hopscotch and took turns jumping rope, they went inside for some juice, thinking they had played outside long enough.
Paragraph: Rita left the twins in their highchairs, while she set up an old quilt under the weeping willow tree in the not-too-small backyard. The tree was what sold her on the not-too-old house that Jeff was not really interested in, but she won out for a change. Atop the quilt she dropped some toys, then brought the boys outside on the mild spring day.
Prompt: Do you remember learning how to ride a bicycle? Describe the experience as completely as possible – who was helping you, what was the weather like, how many times did you fall, etc.?
Word of the Day: jocose – adj. playful; humorous (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.
