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 was the best meal you ever had?
Sentence: Once you understood the basics, life wasn’t so complicated – or so Zack Youngman thought.
Paragraph: Every morning Saul Overmeyer desperately avoided sidewalk cracks, which meant keeping his eyes down. Only when a curb appeared did he raise his head. His efforts forced others to pay attention to and avoid colliding with him. Oblivious of the inconvenience he was causing, Saul continued along the nine blocks to Overmeyer’s Jewelry & Pawn.
Prompt: Plan a romantic getaway and describe what goes wrong. With whom are you going? Is it a surprise?
Word of the Day: jeremiad – n. a prolonged lament; complaint (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.
