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 live on a busy street?
Sentence: That Phillips was keeping the lion’s share of the loot did not sit well with his menacing cronies.
Paragraph: The world of Esther Cronkite did not include the outdoors. Except for five days of flooding back in ’06, the 79-year-old woman had lived every moment of her life in the basement of the family home on Marchmont Avenue. She had not attended school or church, gone shopping, or visited anyone. Until the flood, no one in the neighborhood even knew she existed. Due to her unfortunate condition, the Cronkites thought it best to keep her underground and out of harm’s way.
Prompt: Explain why you might resent someone.
Word of the Day: gyve – n : FETTER, SHACKLE (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.
