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: To which well-known author would you compare yourself?
Sentence: Ben’s bad day began when he barfed bananas onto Bethany’s backpack.
Paragraph: Jansen James Johnston rode to town in the back of a dray with three filty pigs. Not that he had much of a choice, except for walking, which really wasn’t a choice since he had no shoes and snow was falling. He had seen the way his da’s toes had had to be cut off and he wanted none of that.
Prompt: List five times you have been extremely disappointed.
Word of the Day: fiddle-footed – adj 1 : SKITTISH, JUMPY 2 : prone to wander (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.
