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 have any desire to visit Antarctica?
Sentence: “Crikey, this water’s bloomin’ cold!”
Paragraph: Amelia hated wearing glasses, so she took them off between classes. Then one day, with her arms full, she fell down the last few marble steps of a stairway and created a mortifying scene. After being picked up and handed her paraphernalia, saying she was fine to anyone who asked, she left the building as curled up into herself as possible. Sitting in her car moments later, Amelia donned her glasses and surveyed the damage done to her legs and arms for vanity’s sake.
Prompt: Write an essay on your favorite relative. For starters: What makes him/her special? Where does she/he live? How often do you see her/him? What part of the family is he/she? What was the best time you ever had with her/him? How does he/she make you feel?
Word of the Day: axiomatic – adj. 1 of or like an axiom 2 self-evident or aphoristic (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.
