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 were you good at as a child?
Sentence: Love is only as blind as you allow it to be.
Paragraph: Dana Dumont was on the edge of a life-changing precipice. He had been in denial for years and refused to accept reality, which was easy as long as he avoided his reflection and cameras. Now, gazing pitifully at himself in the bathroom mirror, he held the strands of his comb-over in one hand and scissors in the other. Come on, stupid! Get it over with! Which, closing his eyes, is exactly what he did. And there he was – the new Dana Sebastian Dumont, nearly bald and almost proud of it!
Prompt: Someone is pointing a gun at you. Describe the scenario and outcome. Where are you? How did you get into this predicament? Were you trying to help someone in trouble? Are you weak in the knees or high on adrenaline? Is your mind a blank or do you know exactly what to do?
Word of the Day: kegler – n. a participant in a bowling game (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.
