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: Do you finish every book you start?
Sentence: To Jim Torreg there was nothing worse than quiet.
Paragraph: After a prolonged commute home due to the torrential rain, Hansen pulled into his driveway and pressed the garage door remote. However, the garage remained shut, causing him to curse. Grumpily, he grabbed his leather briefcase, pulled up the collar of his coat, and opened the driver’s door to the stormy onslaught. Running to the porch with head down and shoulders haunched, he almost fell. Before entering the house, the drenched man shook himself off like a dog, vaguely wondering why no lights were on inside. That became quite obvious, though, when he could not open or unlock the door. Blinking at the house number, Hansen realized he was not home yet.
Prompt: Describe your total opposite in appearance and personality.
Word of the Day: pluperfect – adj./n. 1 : PAST PERFECT 2 : utterly perfect or complete (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.
