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 will be the next exciting thing that should happen to you?
Sentence: Donnie picked up the little, rubbery snake eggs, put them into his pocket, and forgot all about them.
Paragraph: This is going to be the best trip of my life, thought Coryann. In fact, it would be 12-year-old Coryann Rogers’ first trip anywhere. In the past, her parents had always left her behind with either set of grandparents. Now, here she was: waiting on the train platform with her parents and Aunt Terri, more than ready to board the Amtrak to Vancouver. With extraordinary self-control for a child, Coryann kept herself from any bubbly display of excitement, which would have been frowned upon by the adults. Inside, however, she was bouncing all over the place.
Prompt: Name your first crush.
Word of the Day: vendeuse – n : a saleswoman esp. in the fashion industry (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.
