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’s your favorite day of the week?
Sentence: As the bubble Peter was blowing with bubblegum got bigger and bigger, a crowd began to gather.
Paragraph: Ulysses Meriweather puckered his lips in disdain. A despicable rival, Simon Unster Worthington, was headed his way. The bite of steak he was chewing suddenly turned his stomach and he was forced to, as delicately as possible, remove it from his mouth with the linen napkin. What the bloody hell could the bugger want now? Meriweather pondered.
Prompt: You know you are dreaming, but you cannot awaken. You are dreaming about being up on a small platform in a circus tent. There is a wire stretched out before you and you keep waiting to wake up. Did you have amnesia and suddenly come to your senses? Were you teleported up there? Is there a safety net?
Word of the Day: lentigo – n., pl. –tigines. a freckle or other pigmented spot. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991.)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
