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 hope to achieve with your writing?
Sentence: Hanging from a crane, 100 feet in the air, Hank had enough time to think back to the first point in his life where things began to go awry.
Paragraph: Switch two letters in insect and you have incest. The former brings to mind all sorts of scary bugs; while the latter is a horrendous crime. The first makes me shudder, but the second makes me very, very angry. Both evoke in me the will to kill.
Prompt: You haven’t smoked in 47 days, but you are waffling. How strong are you? Can you resist the urge? Do you care that quitting is a good thing? Are you trying to prove a point or be a better role model? You don’t need a crutch, do you?
Word of the Day: impecunious – adj. having no money; poor; penniless (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.
