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: What do you dare never do?
Sentence: Coming back from the beach, Millie Toledo, eight months pregnant, groaned as she watched her husband race up the tall stairway.
Paragraph: After nearly an hour, Hector gave up raking his customer’s leaves. Every time he would get a pile made, the wind would blow it apart before he could bag it. The frustration just added to his bad day; the Finches had told him they could not afford yard service. He also was worried about his mamacita, not liking that she had to take the bus home from work every night. Raoul’s Taqueria was in a part of town worse than they lived in, but Juanita could not find anything else.
Prompt: You are a cross-country semi-truck driver. Describe the gears, the cab, the load you are hauling and to where, as well as your life on the road. Where is home? Do you work for a company or yourself?
Word of the Day: troposphere – n. : the lowest densest part of the earth’s atmosphere in which most weather changes occur and temperature generally decreases rapidly with altitude and which extends from the earth’s surface to the bottom of the stratosphere (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
