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 was the scariest movie you ever watched?
Sentence: Lightning crackled when I opened the door, and a trick-or-treater jumped into my arms.
Paragraph: As I raised my head from the tub of floating apples, I realized with alarm that the one clamped between my jaws was rotten. Its taste was on my tongue, and so was something else. I felt it crawling in my mouth.
Prompt: Describe your favorite Halloween – costume, place, party, etc.
Word of the Day: nyctophobia – n. unnatural or excessive fear of darkness or night (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.
