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 nightly dreams have you turned into stories, manuscripts, or poems?
Sentence: With one huge breath Lyza blew out the dozens of candles on her birthday cake, then fainted.
Paragraph: From the mesa Chief Silver Wing watched a trio of rising desert cyclones with apprehension. For centuries, his forefathers had warned that too many swirling sand winds within one moon portended disaster for the Apache people. For many moons, since before he became chief, Silver Wing had been trying to move his tribe closer to water. Now it may be too late, for the nearest water source had continued to retreat into the mountains far to the west.
Prompt: Describe who or what you think you might have been in another life.
Word of the Day: rareripe – adj. ripening early – n. a fruit or vegetable that ripens early (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.
