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: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Sentence: Taz’ birthday money was burning a hole in his pocket.
Paragraph: A spectacular rainbow trout jumped out of the water just a few feet to his right. Damn! He had gotten up before dawn to trek to this part of the Snake River, but two hours later had nothing to show for it. Reeling in while wading upstream a couple yards, Tobias Reed thought that maybe this solo fishing trip had been a bad idea. That was the problem: he came because he needed a quiet place to think, but Riva’s Ranch was too isolated. He was not thinking so much as ruminating, remembering things that were best left forgotten.
Prompt: You are substitute teaching today. For what grade? How were you received by the students? Is this your first time or are you a pro? Do you even like children? Do you follow the lesson plan or try to teach the kids something cool? Describe your day.
Word of the Day: irrefrangible – adj. 1. that cannot be broken or violated 2. that cannot be refracted (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.
