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 kind of person do you instantly like or dislike?
Sentence: Even in the direst of circumstances, children will find a way to play.
Paragraph: Samina Fields Sanitarium was established in 1892 by Arthur Whitman, M.D., Th.D. Although the good Dr. Whitman modestly proclaimed helping the suffering was his calling, Samina Fields Sanitarium was not a charitable foundation. Its residents were seldom released, for they never seemed to improve, which did not bother their elite families in the least. However, the stock market crash of 1929 sent Dr. Whitman’s fine establishment into a swift downward spiral.
Prompt: Someone very attractive asks for your help. Do you drop everything? Do you flirt, blush, or stammer? What kind of help is needed? Do you wonder about ulterior motives?
Word of the Day: concupiscence – n. : strong desire; esp: sexual desire (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
