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 is your favorite room decorated?
Sentence: The element of surprise is always essential in scaring someone.
Paragraph: Rascally Uncle Toe taught Lucy and me all there was to know ’bout fibbin’. Yes, siree, nobody could fib like Momma’s youngest brother. He was only a few years older’n me and Lucy, but boy did he know how to fool ever’body into gettin’ his way and blamin’ ever’body but hisself for this-n-that that always seemed to happen when Uncle Toe was around. The way Momma looked at him sometimes made me wonder if she knew ‘xactly what her li’l brother was up to.
Prompt: Name five myths you wish were real.
Word of the Day: havelock – n. a cap cover with a flap hanging over the back of the neck for protection from the sun (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
