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: Are you apt to go for the jugular?
Sentence: Despite being well aware he could not hold his liquor, Bingo Cordova stepped into the first bar he came across.
Paragraph: She was ready to die. She had been waiting for decades, even before her husband had passed. She and Joseph had been the envy of the neighborhood with their two handsome sons and two-story house. Parties at the Staffords were always the best, where food, booze, and games flowed. Yet, none of the neighbors could actually say they knew Ella and Joe well. Aside from a couple flamboyant parties a year, there had been no real contact, other than a wave hello. No invites for coffee or lunch.
Prompt: Something tragic has happened. What is it? Who is involved? How does it affect you?
Word of the Day: velitation – n. a hostile encounter; skirmish or dispute (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.
