Tuesday Tips #19

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: By what rules of life do you abide?

Sentence: Malcolm Donovan, his body plagued with cancer, was blessed with a high pain threshhold.

Paragraph: Amber Wilson. He wanted her. He adored her. He had to have her. Most of all, he deserved her. She was the perfect one for him: blond, green-eyed, petite, smart, easily amused, kind. He lowered his high-powered binoculars and wiped his mouth, imagining her scent, the feel of her skin, her smiling up at him.

Prompt: You have just ingested something you did not know you were allergic to. What is it? What is your reaction? What are you going to do? Who is with you?

Word of the Day: muzzy – adj. 1. confused; befuddled 2. blurred (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.

I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
