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: How old are your favorite clothes or shoes?
Sentence: Roger Edgerton Boyles, Eggy to his mates, lived a life filled with lies.
Paragraph: Stewart sighed. The play’s dialogue was not going well. He burst out of his seat, Hell, a play is all about dialogue! A crazy, unhumorous laugh erupted from within his brain. Idiot, idiot, idiot! He paced, collapsed on the couch, paced, collapsed on the couch, paced, collapsed. “Fuck!” Banging open the French doors, he practically ran to the pool and dove in, clothes and all.
Prompt: You are trapped in a crowded elevator. Describe the smells, tightness, voices.
Word of the Day: uglify – vt. to make ugly; disfigure (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.
