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 prefer back roads or interstates?
Sentence: A hooded, caped figure kept to the shadows at the edge of the manicured yard.
Paragraph: The discharging of the blunderbuss knocked Saralyn off her feet, plopping her backwards onto her butt in the mud. Brother Robby snorted without looking at her, as he concentrated on his target – an apple atop a hay bale 25 feet away. Angered, Saralyn rose as quickly as possible and reloaded, while Robby pulled the trigger and missed, causing her to snicker with glee.
Prompt: Describe what you think the world will be like in fifty years.
Word of the Day: decoct – vt. to extract the essence, flavor, etc. of by boiling (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.
