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: Is it possible to think one’s self to death?
Sentence: A man should not have prettier hair or longer lashes than a woman.
Paragraph: The painting. It was the painting. From Hester’s house. What was it doing here at Stella’s? Hester loved this pastoral scene of horses in a pasture. She would never, ever part with it – not for anything. What was going on?
Prompt: It is lunch hour at a very busy diner and your first day of working there. What is it like? Better or worse than expected? Are you an old pro? Are you frazzled or do you dazzle the customers? Describe your day, your co-workers, the atmosphere, the decor.
Word of the Day: belonoid – adj. needlelike; styloid (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.
