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: In what way do you indulge yourself?
Sentence: With deep resolve Lila Tobias set out to become the world’s most wanted serial killer.
Paragraph: Cameras zoomed in on Jeremy Thatcher’s face as he descended the courthouse steps. Just moments earlier he had been acquitted of statutory rape. The alleged victim had been Stephanie Knox, the district attorney’s fourteen-year-old daughter. Thatcher’s face remained immobile until he entered the limo. Once the door was closed, the former mayor smiled triumphantly and reached for the vodka.
Prompt: You are a politician. What is your platform? How are you doing in the polls? Who are you running against? If you are the incumbent, what do you have going for you? If this is your first candidacy, what are your qualifications? Who is backing you enthusiastically?
Word of the Day: cenesthesia – n. Psychol. the mass of undifferentiated sensations that make one aware of the body and its condition, as in the feeling of well-being or illness (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.
