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 many times do you edit your work?
Sentence: An enormous, orange sun slipped down behind the treeline without fanfare.
Paragraph: Although she did not mind too terribly living on the beach, Marsha hated the stink of dead fish and seaweed. She preferred fresh-water living, but what she liked never mattered to Lawrence, who claimed his soul was linked to the ocean. Looking through the large sliding doors, she admitted to herself that she liked the view. It was just the stench that kept her inside, unable to enjoy swimming or sunning.
Prompt: Identify something (physical, emotional, intellectual, etc.) of which someone you know is oblivious. Is it something you should point out to him/her? What do you imagine would be the result of her/his awareness?
Word of the Day: weasand – n : THROAT, GULLET; also : TRACHEA (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.
