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 life – the cells, genes, flora, fauna, chemistry, etc.?
Sentence: A large monarch butterfly alit upon the swollen, lower lip of a girl laying among the flowers.
Paragraph: What a mistake! Nicki huffed as she rounded the corner to her office. Try to do a good thing and look where it gets you! Blinded by the embarrassing last three minutes, she bumped into a brick wall that was not supposed to be there and landed on her tush with a whoosh from her mouth. Momentarily stunned, she blinked her eyes a couple times to get her bearings, then looked up at an amused mass of muscle in a suit, not a brick wall.
Prompt: You are in a pickle. Explain your unexpected predicament.
Word of the Day: diacritical – adj. 1. serving to distinguish; distinctive. 2. capable of distinguishing. 3. serving as a diacritic. (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.
