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: Do you like your feet?
Sentence: “Indulge me for a moment, Chief Inspector,” pushed Constable Rangley.
Paragraph: Desire rose in him slowly like a smoking volcano. Taking his dark green eyes off his prey, he scanned the room for something to cool him down – someone ugly or obese or eating disgustingly. That simpering waiter across the room. Not his, thank god. They really should not hire flagrant gays.
Prompt: You are about to take a mid-term, but you haven’t studied for it. You goofed off. Now you’re worried. What subject is it? Do you hate this class or just the professor? Will you get any questions right? Should you just walk out and take the hit, hoping to make it up on the final?
Word of the Day: vetch – n. a plant of the pea family, used as fodder for cattle. (Oxford American Dictionary, Heald Colleges Edition, 1980)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
