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 fascinates you about people?
Sentence: After months of winter neglect, the entire Pottle family took to restoring their gardens with purposeful fervor.
Paragraph: Romney Fairfax III, CEO of Netherworld Finance, stripped of his Rolex and fine clothes, looked around his stark cell and down at his prison regs with disgust. He presumed federal prison would be all about polo shirts and tennis courts, having to endure a few years of no live theatre performances, political fundraisers, or elegant restaurants. With an inward snarl he realized he had been duped into being the scapegoat by having an extraordinary after-incarceration bonus dangled in front of him.
Prompt: Name your best attributes and least liked features.
Word of the Day: invaginate – vt. 1 to place or receive into a sheath 2 INTUSSUSCEPT –vi. 1 to become invaginated 2 to grow inward to form a hollow or cavity, as in the formation of a gastrula (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.
