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: When was the last time you had the last laugh?
Sentence: Alana, unlike her siblings, had no desire whatsoever to be a teenager again.
Paragraph: Jeff “T-Bone” Fletcher had had enough of city life. His long-suffering soul needed to get back to the basics: freedom, sun, redwoods, meditation. After handing in his resignation at Kratz, Kratz, and Levitz, he headed to the Franciscan monastery in Big Sur. Every mile closer to the retreat eased his spirit, but Highway 1 was not a road to be taken carefreely.
Prompt: You have had a long, hard day. After getting into bed and turning out the light, a mosquito buzzes past your ear. What happens next? Will you ignore it or let it bite you?
Word of the Day: kenspeckle – adj. easily seen or recognized; conspicuous (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.
