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 do you feel is your lot in life?
Sentence: As she cut her patient open, Dr. Rebecca Maulding hummed along with the OR music, “Tonight, tonight….”
Paragraph: Paw taught me everything I know about the woods – shooting, tracking, surviving. Every summer and Christmas vacation from the time I was eight until I was fourteen, we would spend together living off the land. His cabin was way out in the middle of nowhere, and I learned to do without junk food, television, and anything else that needed electricity. But after the first couple weeks, I didn’t mind. Paw grew me up.
Prompt: Pretend you are a magician, only you really are. You have hidden abilities that allow you to awe people. You are not a fake, like all the other illusionists. Would you tell your secret? What would your best “trick” be? What if you accidently harmed someone?
Word of the Day: ailurophobia – n. abnormal fear of cats (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.
