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.”

Sentence: Big Jim Edwards followed the syringe with his bulging eyes, but passed out before his skin was pricked.
Paragraph: The beautiful forest painting made her wish she was in “The Twilight Zone” or “The Outer Limits,” so she could be transported into the scene.

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
