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 was your first trip to the dentist like?
Sentence: To die or not to die was totally not the question.
Paragraph: It was a slamming kind of day. Everything irritated her: the kids wouldn’t quit bickering; drivers kept cutting her off; she hit every red light; Randall’s was out of oatnut bread, forcing her to use more gas and time trying to find it across town; the book she wanted at the library had already been checked out; and Jim had cancelled their lunch date again. She pulled into the driveway and slammed on the brakes. Then, she slammed open/close the front door, slammed the groceries down on the counter, and slammed open/close the pantry door. It took all her willpower not to slam open/close the refrigerator doors.
Prompt: Describe your worst fear. When did it become your worst fear? Will you ever be free of it?
Word of the Day: contumelious – adj. rude in a contemptuous way; insulting and humiliating (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.
