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: Do you listen to NPR (National Public Radio) while driving?
Sentence: Regrets are a waste of time.
Paragraph: The winter wind whistled through the cabin windows. Set in a small clearing, the well-maintained building belied its emptiness. The pines and firs of the surrounding forest held many secrets twittered to them by birds and squirrels. Their needles had absorbed the sights and smells of many years past.
Prompt: While at a local farmer’s market, you notice someone watching you most intently. Describe your reaction. Do you recognize the person? Are you being followed?
Word of the Day: besom – n. a broom, esp. one made of twigs tied to a handle (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.
