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 dreams have you realized?
Sentence: After Stephen flawlessly recited Walt Whitman’s “Little Orphan Annie,” Professor Numnutts asked him to repeat it.
Paragraph: Celene hated the stink of the beach with its dead fish and seaweed. She much preferred living on a river or a lake with fresh water, but Arthur had long ago declared that his soul was linked to the ocean. Therefore, she had adjusted, just as she had with her other two husbands – until she could not take it anymore.
Prompt: Name the thing that makes you sneeze but that you put up with anyway.
Word of the Day: fustigate – v.i. 1. to cudgel; beat. 2. to criticize harshly; castigate. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
