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 often do your plans for the day go awry?
Sentence: The sprinklers of the Yankshire Golf Club came on despite the rain that had been falling all night.
Paragraph: Putting her head against Reba’s side, Ginger began the morning’s milking with her siblings – Jonah, Eva, Kyle, and Parker. Just another day at Laubert Dairy Farm, a small family business, five generations old. Of the fifteen cows in the barn, Reba was Ginger’s favorite and always the first one she milked. This special bovine seemed to understand that the mind in control of the fingers on her teats was not fully awake as yet.
Prompt: Describe the thrill of bungee jumping. What type of person enjoys plummeting from high places? Was the first time the best? How long does the high last?
Word of the Day: earlock – n. a lock of hair worn in front of the ear (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.
