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 like to push people’s buttons?
Sentence: “You need to lose those balls, little girl,” Ruth curtly admonished her daughter-in-law.
Paragraph: As Child Social Services agent, Delia Roth, neared the dilapidated trailer, she heard a faint baby’s cry. Before knocking on the dented, holey door, Delia could not help pulling on a pair of latex gloves. Jesus! she almost said out loud as a stench assaulted her senses. The door opened as soon as she touched it. Wishing she had worn full-body waders, Delia turned her head away and breathed some fresher air before stepping into hell.
Prompt: Your heart is breaking. Elaborate on: who, how, when, and where.
Word of the Day: gnathonic – adj. [Rare] fawning or flattering (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.
