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: Have you ever been trapped in a bad situation?
Sentence: Uncle Mickey was a funny guy, happy as could be to have a wife so much taller.
Paragraph: All the neighborhood kids, including her brother and sister, thought Holly was nuts for loving school. After only a couple weeks, she could not wait for summer to be over so she could get back to learning. New clothes and supplies had nothing to do with it; they were just added treats. Frankly, she thought everyone else was weird for not wating to go back to school, where the world would be opened up to them. Even Holly’s parents did not truly understand that her mind and soul were starving for knowledge. Although they encouraged her to play outside, she compromised by reading on the porch swing.
Prompt: Your vehicle just blew a tire. Where are you? Where were you going? Do you call for help, hope someone will stop and change it for you, or change it yourself? Is your cell phone in a dead zone?
Word of the Day: detruncate – vt. to cut off a part of (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.
