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 first responsibility you were given as a child?
Sentence: After four heartbreaking miscarriages, Robin and Daniel Edgington decided to become foster parents.
Paragraph: The stress and tension from constant interruptions were taking Delfinia to the edge of her sanity. She needed peace, quiet, and solitude in whatever she endeavored, be it work or cleaning house or reading. That was why she started her own web business. As soon as Anthony and the kids were out of the house, she would begin her routine. If any of them returned home unexpectedly, the doorbell dinged, or the phone rang, Evelyn would clench her teeth, make fists, and scream inside. Unfortunately, her family had no idea their sensible, always-there-for-them wife/mother/daughter/sister was in desperate need of time away from them.
Prompt: Are you comfortable/satisfied with who you are? What would you like to improve upon? Writing is your therapist, all ears. Have at it.
