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 harmless are you?
Sentence: Beary Bear and Porky Porcupine are going on a picnic today.
Paragraph: The sleek schooner snuck into the sleepy cove in the dead of night. The gentle rolling and half moon made the beginning of the adventure most pleasant. One man lowered the anchor, while the other two slept soundly below. A formidable man of great stature and intelligence, Derrick Stover led the trio of soon-to-be thieves. After much research, Stover had discerned that there was no reason his plan should not be implemented or succeed with ease and extreme profit. The two men he had chosen to assist him were retired mercenaries with time on their hands and restlessness in their hearts – Martin “Marty” Shanks and Gilbert “Gil” Farino.
Prompt: Make a list of what you want out of life and why.
Word of the Day: uredo – n. a blight, blast, burning itch (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
